lable? should that be LABEL?
Have you edited grub.conf by hand?

It is label just my fingers getting out of sync.  I checked gurb.conf
and it has the proper files for 2111, the same number and type as 3069


Hi Dave:
You missed the point of Rainers reply. It is supposed to be CAPITOL letters for label (LABEL). You should spellcheck and proofread your posts. What is a gurb.conf file? That should be grub.conf. I'm not trying to put you down, but a spelling mistake in a file can cause unexpected results and it's best to check all your work.

3069?  What kernel is that from?  Was that a 2.4 kernel?

I would recommend not updating with anything but the stock Fedora repos until the system is working properly, then add things like livna or dags. This way you will at least know what the problem is related to.

You might also want to check the archives relevant to the 64 bit 2111 kernel. I seem to recall seeing some problems about that.

No I didn't miss the point I was just in a hurry. My spell check needs to have grub.conf added it doesn't seem to be there along with a lot of other words and acronyms. I did find the problem and correct it, I had added an IDE drive to a SCSI system and as soon as I removed it everything worked as it has in the past 13 years that I have been using Linux.

Thank you for your help.
