Problem in booting after resizing partition
I have RedHat Linux and Win XP on my machine and was using GRUB to boot either of them. It was working fine. I wanted to move some extra space from Linux partition to windows. So I used Partition Magic to free some space on Linux partition and merged it with Windows partition.
Now when I boot, I am taken to the GRUB command prompt. I tried to boot using Linux Intallation CD and also Win XP installation CD, but I always get to that grub command prompt. I don't know what to do from there. Any pointers will be helpful.

At the grub> prompt try the following:Code:
grub> root (hdX,X) (it'll say somthing about the file system found) grub> kernel /vmlinuz-<tab> ro root=/dev/hdXX rhgb (it'll say something else) grub> initrd /init<tab> (I don't think it says anything, it just waits for...) grub> boot
rememebr to replace all the big X with the apropriate hard drive and partition numbers.
