    /dev/hdg3 /mnt/hd2 ext3 rw 0 0


    Note all of these commands where ran against /mnt/hd2/....... since it boots into RH8 and not fedora. I have mounted the partition for fedora as /mnt/hd2. All commands where ran as root with the 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl kernel loaded, but in RH8 at runlevel 3. The exception was the cat command which had no effect for cat /mnt/hd2/proc/mounts, so it was ran against the RH8 with the fedora kernel loaded.

    I thought I was going nuts, but then I finally saw what was wrong. Phew... none of this made sense at all - it was just completely incoherent. Then I saw your GRUB config (it turned out to be a GRUB problem after all... =) ).

    The problem is that you're using disk labels to identify the root filesystem. Those disklabels always mess stuff up. Try this "kernel" command for the fedora config instead of the current one:
    Code:
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=hdg3 hdb=ide-scsi

    Tried that, didn't work. Exact same thing as before. I am also starting to suspect what is provided as the root!

    OK, so I tried that and as my previous post says - it failed to work.

    Good news the following has worked

    kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=/dev/hdg3 hdb=ide-scsi

    The /dev/ seems to have sorted out the suggestion you made. I must say, I thought I had tried every possiible combo today of /dev/.

    Thanks for the help Dolda2000!!!!!!!!!!!
