Critical System Failure

I was installing some new packages in the package manager when KDE suddenly froze. After a long time of waiting I decided to press the reset button. Since then I keep getting “Boot manager missing” message on bootup.

Can this calamitous situation be rescued?

Use your installation DVD and try to repair your system.

maybe, maybe not…

if you have or can get a live CD, boot from it and mount your hard
drive READ ONLY…

then do this command

df -h
fdisk -l
cat /etc/fstab
cat /boot/grub/menu.lst

hopefully, the Live CD will automatically see your internet connection
and you can use the browser and copy/paste the output back to this
thread using the instructions here:

oh, and cross your fingers…
