I had an old machine running Debian with software raid over a 5 Gig and
a 6 Gig drive (yes go on, laugh).

took out the CD and went to reboot into the system I get the following:

Filesystem type unknown , partition type 0xfd
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.15-server root=/dev/md1 ro quiet splash
Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition

I didn't notice due to the raid. However, they both seem to be
Can anyone enlighten me here.
