Thanks all for your reply....Finaly I was able to get
my linux SuSE 9.2 back with the previous
But I have to say after changing the RAM ..I was still
unable to repair the system Only with the YaST2
graphic interface... Initialy when I ran the automatic
repair YaST2 reported that it found some errors but
although YaST2 reported that the filesystem was fixed
..I still was not able to boot the system and I was
not able to repair the MBR as it was also corrupted in
my bad fortune (and I ran YaST2 many times trying to
fix the filesystem).and only when I ran the commaline
'fsck.reiserfs --rebuild-tree /dev/hd?' that the
filesystem was realy reprared and finaly YaST2 was
able to repair the MBR...

I only report this so other user don't stop trying
when YaST report -REPAIRED- while problem still exist.

Thanks for all the help.
