fdisk /dev/hda& removed the partitions that held FC1. That's when I realised that
/bootwhich was supposed to be
/dev/hda7& that my Gentoo
/usrhad moved up as well. And then it flashed. Oh Shit!!!
Rebooted to see Grub giving a nice Error 17. Gaah. Tried Knoppix, but
grub-installrefused to work even though the partition had write permissions. RedHat & FC's rescue modes weren't of any use as there weren't any RedHat/FC installs around anymore. The only option I didn't try was Gentoo's Live CDs. Finally installed FC2 to get grub back up than played in the command line to get it to boot into Gentoo & finally set things right.
Total time wasted due to screw-up : Afternoon Nap of about 3 hours. By the time I was done with all this, it was too late to sleep & had to take Spike for a walk.
