RE: Help Please Can I reinsall FC 2 without losing my data

I think the message was clear. After booting with Linux Rescue, at the
command prompt, try this:

# chroot /mnt/sysimage

You should see all you files there.

You may want to try to re-install GRUB to the MBR:

# grub-install /dev/hda
 (hda or sda for IDE or SCSI hard disk)

Subject: Help Please Can I reinsall FC 2 without losing my data

I installed Fedora core 2 server six month ago and it worked fine. Yesterday
after turn off the computer the system did not boot. The server upon reboot
will get stuck at then At grub boot screen I  removed  "rhgb quiet" and
rebooted it. I got more messages but stuck at the same message.  INIT:
version 2.85 booting 
I reboot the computer And used FC2's First CD with Linux rescue mode I did
not get any errors . after continuing many steps
the message I got  " Your system is mounted under the /mnt/sysimage
and the shell prompt came.  sh-2.05b# 
The result of  "ls" command:
bin             etc           linuxra             mnt             oldtmp    
       sbin                 sys                usr 
dev              lib             lost+fund            modules          proc
       selinux         temp             var

My question is if I reinstall FC2 without  any modification on dsk
partitions,  is  it possible to loose my data 
"database and programs"  that I have under  usr/local/           ?
