Hello Gurus,

We have a server running Mandrake, and for those who are familiar w/ the
distro, is there a sensitive disk repair for Mandrake 9.2 ? By this I mean,
is there a way to reinstall the core files (like the kernel) while
retaining setting and important files located in such places as /usr/,
/etc/, and a few personally made /raid/... dirs. I know the SuSE 9.0 distro
offers this function, and its quite easy to use, but I'm not sure if
Mandrake offers anything similar.
Your input is warmly appreciated.

Ryan

Hi,

I don't know if it is too late now, but if you can recover the system,
have a google search on Mondo tool, it's a super 5 star backup tool
which does exactly what you want, but you have to back up the system
before.... so at least next time it won't happen!!!

good luck
