RE: Problem with full hard disk



The problem could be that grub finds 2 partitions with the same label
and quits because of that. I got this problem when building RH9 on a
separate HD and trying to dual-boot with RH8.0.

The solution is to boot from the CD in rescue mode, mount one of the
hard disks and use tune2fs to change the label entries. You also have to
edit /boot/grub/grub.conf and /etc/fstab appropriately.
