    What does your /mnt/hda6/etc/lilo.conf file say?

    YES! Finally! Apparently you are indeed using LILO, as jeremy suggested. Now that we've found the file in question, could said poster perhaps enlighten us both as to what's wrong with the file? Nothing looks particularly off-kilter to me..

    He did suggest reinstalling it. What do you think? If so, then how?

    Easiest way is to open up a console and type lilo. However I'm not sure how to do this for a mounted file system. You may need to chroot /dev/hda6 first, then type lilo.

    That doesnt work. Do you think its impossible for my desknote to run Mandrake. I had Mepis installed on the desknote and it ran perfect. But I like the way Mandrake runs alot better.

    Reinstalling lilo is one of the options when you press f1 at the prompt rather then enter.

    But, I'm thinking that's not your problem, for one thing, lilo.conf looks fine, for another, you say it does the bios check. What's the output of

    Code:
    cat /mnt/hda6/var/log/messages
