CommentUsed the instructions for RHEL4 and it worked a treat. ====================================================== Step 1) Boot into Rescue Mode by booting the first install disc and typing "linux rescue" followed by ENTER. Step 2) After you reach a command prompt, chroot into /mnt/sysimage with: chroot /mnt/sysimage Step 3) Invoke grub-install in order to install the boot loader. /dev/i2o/hda is the first array of your I2O controller, which is probably what you want to boot. grub-install /dev/i2o/hda Step 4) Assuming there were no error messages in the last step, simply type "reboot" and remove the install disc from your drive. You should now have a GRUB boot menu. ======================================================
