Exactly which partition did you split?  How was it changed?  The output
of `fdisk -l` would be helpful.

I can give you the current fdisk (tried to set the partition table back in
its original state)
Device      Start   End     Blocks   ID   System
/dev/hda1      1    261   2096451    83   Linux native
/dev/hda2    262   2489  17896410     5   Extended
/dev/hda5    262    264     24066    83   Linux native
/dev/hda6    265   1411   9213246    83   Linux native
/dev/hda7   1412   1736   2610531    83   Linux native
/dev/hda8   2473   2489    136521    82   Linux swap

I split partition /dev/hda6 into using 'cfdisk' ( did not write down
numbers at that time), which mean /dev/hda7 in the table became /dev/hda8
etc. What I didn't do was updating  fstab, because I thought
cfdisk would do that (yes, I'm a newbie). But apparently fstab wasn't
updated, it's entry still was
/dev/hda7 / ext2 defaults 1 1

which means when I rebooted the system the root didn't come up again.
Is there any way to save the settings? Or do I need to start from
scratch and reinstall the system?
