Help me! Before i kill myself!
Ok guys, i will try and give as much info as i can. I have an IBM thinkpad 240, with no OS, no CD drive and no FD drive. I have 2 * 6 GB HDD's, neither of which work. The first one has a clean install of PHLAK on it. It boots, then grub fails saying:
Hard disk hd(1,0) does not exist
So anyway i got through this by using grubs command line, manually loading the vmlinuz kernel and booting. All seemed to be going well, but the kernel panics when loading the X server, and stops everything, before shutting down without prompt.
The second hard disk gets to grub, but before it lets me choose, it just restarts. No error message.
Those who have helped me get this far will know that i have to connect my laptop HDD to a desktop to install, using an adapter. This brings me to my next problem
I install from a desktop that accesses the internet on a wireless connection. This means i have to tell it not to set most things up for now. Still i cant even get a basic shell going! It's driving me insane. Ive tried: PHLAK, XFLD, Debian, Ubuntu, everything. Just wont work.
The final thing, does anybody know how to reset the MBR of an ext3 Hard drive through windows?
Sorry for the long post, but i got a lot of troubles!
Thanks in advance,

Install windows...it autodestructivemagically puts its MBR on there without asking.
