This is getting really fun!
I can't get any of my live cd versions to work. It looks like none like my SATA hard drive controller. Could that be part of the problem?
I know that if I watch the monitor as the server booted up, back when it worked, it showed a bunch of drive errors: ata2: translated ATA stat/err 0x51/20 to SCSI SK/ASC/ASCQ
I would like to try fsck, but I've never used it before, and the info about it on the web is not very helpful. I'm guessing I first need to be able to boot into something. I can get to the rescue section, but I can't get fsck to do anything there. It just keeps showing me it's help info. I'm also not to sure about how I need to mound the partition. I know I only have one on the servers drive.
