I have one 80 GB HDD which has Windows XPSP2 (NTFS based) & Ubuntu 6.06
upgraded to Ubuntu 6.10 (ext2). It had GNU GRUB 0.97 running underneath
it all. Everything was running fine & suddenly yesterday it gave me
error 17. Looking in Grub Legacy came to know tht error 17 means :-
17 : Cannot mount selected partition
This error is returned if the partition requested exists, but the
filesystem type cannot be recognized by GRUB.
Now in such should I re-install everything or is there some sorta hack
which can make it good without re-installing the whole thing.
Lastly when we should be able to see Grub2 being used in main-stream
distros. Thnx in advance.
Another thing can somebody download the dvd iso of Ubuntu 6.10
. This is the torrent link for the same. Thnx in advance.
