No, the CDROM drive is fine; it works under windows.

Okay, I have made some progress.  I was able to bootup in single
usermode from the "grub>" prompt but I can't change my root passwd.

Here is the story:
==============================================================
sh-3.1# passwd
Changing password for user root.
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error
sh-3.1#
==============================================================

I can't login as root which means I can't correct the grub installation.
PS: I passed in selinux=0 after the kernel line in grub.  What else
could this be?



Thanks,
Ernest
