    Here we go again. Just have installed Ubuntu 7.04 and openSUSE 10.2, respectively. For Ubuntu I created logical partition (sda5) and under openSUSE mounted it as /ubuntu. GRUB has recognized Ubuntu and add it to the list of OSes (I have WinXP on sda1). But, Ubuntu won't to boot. It starts, but then it says that fsck has failed, maintenance starts and stops. I believe the problem is in some option in GRUB, but I have no idea which one. If someone has an idea what should be done, I will appreciate it.

    Here are GRUB entries:

    problem is in /etc/fstab file of Ubuntu. mount Ubuntu partition in SuSe and post contents of its /etc/fstab file. post the output of 'fdisk -l' command too.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
