Okay I got bored and did the full install after all...
Everything went fine with the install and then following the Perfect Setup... until I rebooted
when it was doing the checks and got to "Checking filesystems" I get;
fsck.ext3 Unable to resolve 'Label=/'
and it threw me into shell.
In the Perfect Setup under Quota
we edited this line in /etc/fstab
to add usrquota and grpquota. I blocked and copied so I don't believe I made a key error but maybe I didn't save it right or something.
Can I fix this from the shell? I am weak at best with console so.... It did cross my mind I could recreate /etc/fstab and copy it there through the shell and hopefully overwrite the old. Now the question is... what would the shell commands be to copy from floppy to dir?
I got a little more info... when it goes to shell it gives a couple options.
Enter root password for maintenance.
(or type Control-D to continue) Control D just reboots back th the same problem.
Entering root password gives
(repair filesystem) 1 #
I just don't know what to enter here. Exit does just that and reboots.
I figured out the copy command (cp) but cannot get either linux machine to recognize the floppy drive e.g. cp /floppy or /floppy drive or /fd0. I have tried every imaginable combo and name.
