When I rebooted my system goes to the grub screen. Again I had to enter entering rescue mode to alter all changes to boot sucessfully.

So, does your new splash image appear properly?


Your /boot partition is /dev/hda3 and / is /dev/hda5?

Whe you're in grub, do all of the following commands return (hd0,2)?

find /grub/stage1
find /grub/stage2
find /grub/menu.lst

Does the command

configfile /grub/menu.lst

bring up your menu?

I have attached my grub.conf for your reference.

Curious. Your menu says "Red Hat Linux 9.0" but you appear to be booting a rather old Red Hat 8.0 kernel...
