Hi all,
I have one 80 GB HDD which has Windows XPSP2 (NTFS based) & Ubuntu 6.06 upgraded to Ubuntu 6.10 (ext2). It had GNU GRUB 0.97 running underneath it all. Everything was running fine & suddenly yesterday it gave me error 17. Looking in Grub Legacy came to know tht error 17 means :-


17 : Cannot mount selected partition
   This error is returned if the partition requested exists, but the
   filesystem type cannot be recognized by GRUB.

Now in such should I re-install everything or is there some sorta hack which can make it good without re-installing the whole thing. Lastly when we should be able to see Grub2 being used in main-stream distros. Thnx in advance.
