I did something unbelievably daft last night.
Compiled a SuSE 5.2 kernel for ip forwarding,
made a backup copy of the existing one and put
the new kernel in place.
And then rebooted.
2 seconds later I realised 'b*&%*&% I forgot to
So now my machine gets halfway through uncompressing/loading the kernel and then reboots.
Now, the plot gets thicker.
My system is split into 2 partitions so when I log in through an old boot disk all I can see is my /usr partition.
Which not so nicely enough means that I can't grab the configuration files and try to get things back to normal.
Is there anything that I can do about this or should I just nuke the whole thing and install from scratch?
