thanx for your advice:

I wish I could - the rescue system will hang just there, where hd-boot
"INSTALL WITH SAFE OPTIONS" works AND recognised hdb1, so it must be
there - however, how can I access the hdb1 using this option?

"INSTALL SAFE OPTIONS" works. Still, I can assure it *is* there.

Look, this is the fileserver of our workgroup at university (-> This
is, why I'm gonna be in trouble, propably). The former admin has
vanished into haze, so it was up to me to update the system and I
doubt I will be able to contact him. So I'll lack for some info:
Former OS: Suse 7.2
Kernel: Don't know, either 2.2. or 2.4. - I guess, it must have been
the default kernel, Suse 7.2 chooses ...

Again: I don't know and assume, it must have been the default version,

Yes, it is! hdb *is* recognised, not so the partition hdb1 in standard
startup - SAFE MODE seems to work, but see ^^^^

Anything you want!
Thank you very much, again, for your advice so far ...
