    Open a console, and become root user with su command. Then do

    fdisk -l to get a list of partitions

    cat /boot/grub/menu.lst to let us see your grub menu layout

    Post the results if you need more help. Yes, the yast boot loader tool provides the easiest way to edit menu.lst file.

    Change those to

    root noverify (hd0,0)
    chainloader (hd0,0) +1

    In particular, watch the spaces and keep everything lowercase.

    Please don't double post the same question in two places, because it means I waste my time answering it somewhere else.
