Charles,

You'll get a lot farther, faster, if you confirm your device.map and try
booting with the repaired fstab & menu.lst I posted. AFAIK, "/dev/sda,7" is
not valid anywhere... it is inconsistent with *nix device 'notation'
(i.e. "/dev/sda7"... no comma) as well as inconsistent with grub's 'notation'
(i.e. "(hd0,6)" in 'grub-speak' is the first hard drive, seventh partition,
since grub starts counting at zero.)

hth & regards,

Carl
