What a novel!
a couple things to start off with.
just a quicky, did you setup the pins right on the back of the harddrives? since you were working with just a single drive before, you will need to do this.Partitioned it with 15Gb and 25Gb. Both partitions are NTFS. I installed all this with the second drive as master WITHOUT conencting the 1st one. Now i installed both the hard drives.
i don't think that linux will install to NTFS, you must have formated that section of the drive with the ext3,2,reiserFS, or some of the other popular FS.Both partitions are NTFS
Just out of curiousity, why keep two copies of win2k on the same machine?
Anyways, lets walk through how to put grub on your MBR properly 8)
You will want to start by booting into linux.
open a shell and at the prompt, type 'grub'.
this will set you into the grub commandline for setup
At this point, it would be wise to know what is installed where on your harddrives. On the regular commandline, type 'cat /etc/fstab'. This will show you all of your partitions.
When i was setting up Gentoo, I kept a list of what was where next to me on a peice of paper.
Another note for grub is about syntax. When you specify a harddrive and partition, it must follow this example, including the parenthesis: (hd0,0)
This example specifies harddrive A, or the master harddrive, the first harddrive connected you your computer, however you like ot look at it, and the second 0 specifies the 1st partition on that drive. Essentially, grub starts counting at 0, not 1.
So, all you have to do after this, is type 'root (hd0,0)' where the 0's are which harddrive the /boot partition is on and which partition it is.
Then to install grub to the MBR of the master drive, type 'setup (hd0)'
To add your windows partitions, open up /etc/grub.conf with your favorite editor. Add the following to the bottom and edit the hd# and partitions as described above.
#win2k partition 1
title=Windows NT Workstation
(look familiar right )
All set. That should give you enough of a headstart to not have to use a bootdisk, and lemme know if anything is unclear.
