    well then the kernel image will most likely be in:
    /dev/hda5/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.8-1.521

    I tried that, and got the same "unable to mount" error. In knoppix. the hda5 partition has the two vmlinuz files that I have on the comp now. so I think /dev/hda5/vmlinuz... is correct. Is it possible to restore the bootloader using my Fedora installation disc without loosing data on the FC2 partition

    Well, the rescue didn't work. It started up in rescue mode, and then tried to mount the FC2 installation, and said it failed part way through. There were still quite a few files (the home directory, the root directory, etc) in the /mnt/sysimage file however.
    I then tried to do an upgrade (keeping all files) but it said that it coudn't mount the partition containing the installation.

    If we can't solve this problem, you can always:
    boot up into knoppix and back up your files to a removable media or cd-burner or something then reinstall

    Well, I backed up my home directory, and re-installed FC2. Worked like a charm. In fact, the whole reason for this problem was that I was trying to get rid of a large chunk of unallocated disk space tht I didn't know I had left un utilized. I was able to delete the two existnig linux partitions, and simply ocupt the free space on the disc. Thanks for ur rapid and persistant help lakerdonald.
