Thank you for the reply. I try to run your line using rescue disk this
is the answer:
find: '/lib/modules/':no such file or directory 
find: '/lib/modules/':no such file or directory 
find: '/lib/modules/':no such file or directory 
find: '/lib/modules/':no such file
or directory 
find: '/lib/modules/':no such file or directory 
find: '/lib/modules/':no such file or directory 

I don't know what this means, the
file /boot/initramfs- is there
I try to open grub.conf it would not let me. if there is any other Idea
I would like to try.
