i need to mount the partition to edit the grub.conf since im getting the no root device error
Can you be more specific, what commands did you type in the console to mount the HD?
Go to console:
mount /dev/sda1 /media/floppy
(I use floppy as mounting point because I have no floppy drive in my laptop. It's just a name, doesn't matter.)
(Your boot partition, containing GRUB, should be sda1, but you can make sure by opening the partition editor on DVD)
Hope this works for you.
