I am able to boot into a "rescue" mode, from a CD with limited functionality, but I do not know how to start to diagnose / fix the problem. Any hints are greatly appreciated.
Control Centre/Yast2 Modules/System/Bootloader/Bootloader
Installation/Other/ReRead Configuration from Disk/Finish and the
configuration for grub will be rewritten to disk.
(Above from doing a "dry" run and without actually redoing my grub setup
but,from memory, it is what I did a while back on SuSE 9.3 when I was
fooling around on my test computer and things got a bit messed up. Also,
the above are from SuSE 10 but the Bootloader is still to be found in
the Yast modules.)
In a period of great joy and pleasure you are comforted by the thought
that tragedy is just around the corner.
