Discuss Digest, Vol 11, Issue 5

Sorry for the terse email. This is a new install of fedora. Machine already contained a full version of 2003. Installed fedora on what used to be the  d: drive.

When it boots (and there isn't any cd in the drive), it hangs right after it prints 'GRUB' to the screen. Doesn't allow any input. Doesn't print the menu to the screen. Doesn't get to the part that says 'Hit a key to go to the menu'

[root at localhost grub]# more grub.conf
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You do not have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
#          root (hd1,1)
#          kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hdb2
#          initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4)
        root (hd1,1)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.img
title Other
        rootnoverify (hd0,0)
        chainloader +1

If there is a non-bootable cd, say Nirvana's Nevermind, in the drive, it boots like a champ.

Thanks for any info/feedback.
