Check the docs!
LIL- The descriptor table is corrupt. This can either be caused by
geometry mismatch or by moving /boot/map without running the map
Alas, I've no idea what that means :)
See if you can boot off CD, mount the root partition under /broken, and
re-run lilo like so:
lilo -R /broken
You didn't overwrite the /boot/map file with System.map or anything,
did you ?
'fraid to say I did! Stupid yes! I wasn't paying attention at the time.
I'm booting off a floppy anytway but its just the RH install floppy.
