    Are you sure that was right as well? It seems as if you wrote "label/" instead of "label=/". If it still doesn't work, the give me the output of the GRUB command "find /bin/ls".

    I might have misspelled in the previous post but I entered the command correctly. I double checked and I get the same error.
    Also tried find /bin/ls and that return (hd0,6)

    I tried the rescue mode and I can get to the system and of course I don't have a clue what to do. It mounted /mnt/sysimage and when I had a look I saw what looked like my system.

    I think I failed to mention something, I just did not think of it. I have deleted a partition through XP. This was an NTFS partition and was not mounted under Linux. Could that be the problem.

    It could indeed. If the NTFS partition was an extended partition, it will have caused the rest to be renumbered. That explains why your grub.conf thinks that your boot partition was (hd0,6) while in fact it is (hd0,5) now. Try to boot your system like this:
    Code:
    kernel (hd0,5)/vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=0307 hdc=ide-scsi
    boot

    Thanks Dolda,

    I did a reinstall. I was getting desperate because of the forum being down

    Can you tell me where I can find more info on all these grub recovery commands?

    Cheers

    Run "info grub" in a terminal. That will give you an extensive manual of GRUB.
