    OMG...hell yeah...I saved my fstab file as fstabold and then took 2 lines out of the fstab file and saved it....and low and behold, im up and running...YEEHAW!

    I removed:
    none /proc/bus/usb usbfs defaults 0 0
    /dev/sda1 /usr ext3 defaults 1 2
    and linux booted right up!
    I was thinking about trying that a while ago, but I didnt wanna screw it up, I finally decided well as long as I save the file under another name before I modify it I should be ok. It worked....Thanks for all your help...Now all I gotta do is figure out the right way to make a bootable usb stick. for now, im just happy its back up and running

    The lines with the hash marks (#) to the left of them will not be read. You have hda1 and sda1 entries which, to Grub are both (hd0,0) so I assume that was what the problem was. Strange that it would create entries like that unless you had your hardrive unplugged/disconnected when you did the install to usb.

    I may have used the wrong iso to do the live usb, I didnt download the minime iso, I used the same iso I made when I did make live cd which is remaster.iso to try to create a live USB, that may be part of the problem. I really just wanted a backup of my system in case it crashes, but the iso is 1.5gb so it wont fit on a CD so I was gonna try to make live usb. I think maybe, I will just save the iso to my 2gb usb stick and then burn a live dvd on my laptop which has a dvd burner...the live usb is too confusing. LOL
