so, I'm setting up dual booting, but didn't get it quite right, and needed to put the sharp kernel back. I used cortez's updater.sh, put the zImage.bin onto the memory card with it, and kicked it off*

it flashed the kernel no problem. when it said "format hard drive" I hit CTRL-C, no effect, so then I typed N and hit return, and it proceeded to format the hard drive. ARRRGHHH! ph34r.gif

sigh.

Ouch. I hope you have backups and/or nothing important on your hard drive.

fortunately, nothing too important as I'd flattened it when installing cortez's android.

it's kind of funny, really, as I'd installed cacko with katastrphos kernel + new modules + kat's WM sound driver and got it just right. then I'd partitioned the microdrive, formatted it, copied on all the debian files, added the new kernel, copied over kat's sharp kernel, put a few scripts in place, and then installed the yonggun kernel, and so was on the very last stage to have dual booting ready. booted the new yonggun kernel but it wouldn't mount the hard drive 'cos I'd forgotten to put journalling on, so I had to restore sharp kernel to boot cacko to turn on journalling. So, I was at the very very last step when I wiped out the entire debian install blink.gif
