Ouch.  Looks like the hard disk bit the big one...unfortunately I am not
very good with disk recovery.  I'm forwarding this on to, someone there may be able to detail the procedure.

Subject: kernel gone

I re-build my kernel sucessfully and installed it. However, when I re-booted
something went wrong. The boot manager works fine, but it keeps looping
displaying the *Boot:* prompt. If I hit enter to see the file I can boot
from the only file visible is *lost+found* - it looks like all of my old
kernels are gone.
I can boot from a floppy and use fixit but I can't seem to mount my hard
Question: Is there any way to copy a kernel from another machine to the
hard drive while using fixit? How do you access the hard drive while using
fixit? What utilities are avaliable?
