RE: Boot loader problem after addiing SCSI disk



Hi Emilio,

Actually the fstab is using LABEL rather than physical device names.
I described the devices as sdx in my email as the LABELs / is probably
not that
meaningful to describe the different devices.  Maybe a wrong assumption.

The error seems to me is referring to a problem in locating the
grub.conf file.
But thought the grub-install command is the one to reset it, is it not?

Peter

This is a good consecuence for to have in the /etc/fstab the device's
LABEL instead of giving  the device name explicitly.

Thanks
