Partition table entries are not in disk order
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
sda8 -- lfs and sda9 -- mandriva

Is this problem relates to file system or with the config parameters of he
kernel ?
Can i provide any other information , to slove this problem.

In my error documentation , no RAID disks message is there , is this
releates to hard disk ?
