Re: Up2date -f boots to "grub>" prompt!



Hello List.. I forgot to say that I hadn't rebooted the machine immediately after the update - some hours later (trying to tidy up) I had accidentally hit the power switch and it went down uncleanly, with the resulting boot to grub>
 
Rebooting with a boot diskette gets me to the following:
 
EXT2-fs: ide0(3,1): couldn't mount because of unsupported optional features.
Invalid session number or type of track
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:01
 
Any idea on what "unsupported optional features" means?  Is this a hardware or software related error?
 
Advice greatly appreciated.
 
/j-p.

I'm in trouble List.... After reading a previous message on simply upgrading the kernel with the up2date -f force switch.  I tried it and rebooting gets me immediately to the:

prompt.  I'm using rh 7.2.  I had upgraded the kernel previously from the redhat network website, and hoped for equally successful results this time.  Now I'm stuck, and mail's goin' to bounce I'm sure.
 
I'd be grateful for any help to get me out of this one.
 
thanks
