Last night, I tried to rebuild my boot loader. I made use of
$/sbin/lilo
and now I my PC can load the green main graphical menu before starting any O.S.
Choosing the option Linux isn't yet a so good idea. Some errors appeared:
read_super_block: can't find a reiserfs filesystem on (dev03:0a, block 64, size 1024)
read_super_block: can't find a reiserfs filesystem on (dev03:0a, block 8, size 1024)
kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:0a

Reading the tutorial
LILO-crash-rescue-HOWTO
that comes with SuSE CD #1 it is said to add some lines to fstab

Edit /etc/fstab (not /rootpart/etc/fstab) and put (sample code given
here) -



______________________________________________________________________
/dev/hda4 /rootpart ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda5 /rootpart/boot ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda6 /rootpart/usr ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda7 /rootpart/var ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda8 /rootpart/opt ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda9 /rootpart/root ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda10 /rootpart/home ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda11 /rootpart/win95part vfat defaults 1 1

(In this case I already know that my /boot, /usr, /bar, ...partitions are on hda6)
Sorry I'm a beginner and I don't know whether it applies or not to me.
'Could you help again?

So, as Ken suggested too, I should use the command

/usr/sbin/grub_install /dev/hda


Are you saying you have that command? On my machine it's grub-install,
not grub_install.

When you log in to the rescue system, you should

mkdir tmpdir
mount /dev/hda6 tmpdir
cd tmpdir
chroot . (note the space and dot)
grub-install /dev/hda
