My main goal was to write a procedure to duplicate my working Linux software
on a second PC. I already had a tared version of my partition data from the
first PC so destroying the partition data was not a problem.
I recreated the filesystem with the command “mkfs.ext3 –I 128 /dev/sda2”.
I then untared my filesystem archive into the partition.
The legacy Grub “find” command could then find files in (hd0,1), as expected,
and menu.lst in the first partition could boot a Linux kernel in partition two.
Again thanks for the help,
