> Thank you very much. I will try this out this evening.Well unfortunately that didn't work. I guess this is where I go deeper into idiot mode. Here are the errors I get when I boot up and into the "INTERACTIVE" mode which I have yet to let me be interactive with by pushing I:
FAILED: Remounting file system in read-write mode : LABEL=/ duplicated
- not mounted
various others that OK
Starting System Logger:
and that is what i get left with
I did try booting into REDHAT 8.0 and disabling kudzu with chkconfig
and I still get this error. Perhaps I missed something? And just to
clarify, I did make sure that my REDHAT 8.0 HD was the Primary master
and the REDHAT 7.1 HD was the Primary Slave which shows up both in the
BIOS as well as the startup text that comes up.
Again, thanks in advance for your help.
