Re: [vox-tech] What I Did Tonight

Use a boot CD.  For me, that means running the Mandrake installation CD
with the rescue option.  But that's just me.

You *might* be able to boot with u2's partition as the root partition (I
think you pass "root=/dev/<blah>" to the kernel at boot).  I can see the
kernel complaining, but it might work.

Either way, copy the files back to the original root partition and reboot.
