tnx for help.
At the moment I have to suspend my work, as this morning, when I
booted the pc from my USB disk, it didn't recognize only the /boot
partition: the same when I connected the same USB disk to another PC.
I hope to recover the situation this evening at home, by the Fedora
DVD running an installation.
