Grub is a micro operating system with its own cli with command line completion.
As stated before, at the grub prompt:
1- grub > root (hd0,0) At this moment, the disc is mounted
2-type grub > kernel /boot/TAB this is the TAB key that invokes the command line completion and it will dump the list of possible files including the vmlinuz kernel files, choose the most logical version and complete with a short parameter list, so you should have something like:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz.... ro root=/dev/hda1
3- do the same for the initrd:
grub> initrd /boot/TAB... with no arguments
then the great command:
>>> "Mel Wade" <mel melwade com> 2008-11-20 21:45:40 >>>
With only the GRUB prompt how can you determin the version you have?
