Re: Error 16: Inconsistent filesystem structure

I installed Fedora 7 from Christopher Negus' Fedora 7 and Red Hat

"Other" in Grub but will only boot "Other." I don't see what is
inconsistent. Suggestions appreciated.

Here's what it says:

 Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type is 0x83
kernel /vmlinuz- ro root=dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb
? typo or missing / between = and dev    /\
? did you mean to be using LVM {should be type 8e}
? did it run out of space on /boot

Error 16: Inconsistent filesystem structure
It doesn't understand the disk.
Make sure the disk is logically sound with:
- boot rescue cd or dvd with: linux rescue
- don't mount your partitions
- fsck -f /dev/sda1 (and 2 and so on)

Selecting either Fedora kernel just repeats the above.

Fedora is installed on the second ATA drive in the machine. It was an
NTFS disk but Fedora wouldn't install until I used fdisk and mk2fs with
the book's Fedora Live CD and I created ext3 partitions which I had
marked as type 83. Then anaconda did a uneventful full install.

Which disk and partition is grub installed to ?

Can you boot the cd to get into rescue mode ?
What partitions are where {fdisk -l} ?
