It sounds like the MBR of the boot drive (and I am assuming the boot drive
is a physical drive/spindle and not just a partition). When using the
recovery console, you can reset the maste boot record, unless the drive has
failed. I belive you can do it with Knoppix as well, but I am not totally
familiar with it.
