I have a 486 DX2/66Mhz with VLB. When I installed Linux on
my machine, I didn't have an IDE VLB hard drive controller.
I heard that I will have much more power with an IDE/VLB so
I bought one. But when I installed it, it didn't mount my
hard drive as root file system. So I boot from a raw floppy
disk and tried to do a e2fsck on my disk like this:
e2fsck -v /dev/hda1
And I received this error:
e2fsck 0.3, 93/04/22 for EXT2 FS 0.3a
Checking root directory
e2fsck: root inode isn't a directory
And it stop. I have 2 hard drive:
/dev/hda1 is Linux root
/dev/hda2 is swap
/dev/hdb1 is MS-DOS
It worked well with the DOS drive where I use MS-Windows.
Is there is a way of using e2fsck to recover my disk
Thank you for any help.
