Re: Back up data in Rescue mode

If I could  upgrade  my  fc2  server( which does not boot ) with fc3 or fc4  that's fine
I will find  fc3.

I had tried to reinstall fc2 with my Cd's .
I chose automatic   partitioning then I chose Keep all partitions and use existing free space
which showed three partitions,
/dev/hda1  boot
/dev/hda2   root
/dev/hfa3 swap
when I had tried to click next,  I got error that you did not choose Root directory.
I did not know what I had to do.
Then I have decided to back up my data and reinstall with remove all partitons option .

Slightly off topic - but if you have a copy of fc3 or fc4 you can do an
upgrade, which might leave your data intact.  --gary
