    Grub :: Windows XP section

    I need to add a few XP drives to my box. I have no clue how to do XP (or NT for that matter) sections. Anyone who has a GRUB config for a dual boot system, could you please post.

    I am getting really tired of toying with the bios already ...

    chainloader (hd0,0)+1

    should do it if it's on /dev/hda1 i believe.

    Re:Grub :: Windows XP section

    Umm, WTF happened. I rebooted again, to start up work on a NWN module . And now I cant use grub to load XP ::

    Code:
    default=0
    timeout=10
    splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
    title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-19.8.0)
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-19.8.0 ro root=LABEL=/ hdb=ide-scsi
    initrd /initrd-2.4.18-19.8.0.img
    title WindowsXP Professional
    rootnoverify (hd2,0)
    chainloader +
    My IDE situation is

    0:Linux Disc
    1VD
    2:XP OS
    3:XP data

    I am confused ....

    hey schotty,
    one thing rh does that makes me mad is put in the root=LABEL=/ stuff. i replace this with the acual partion, e.g. root=/dev/hda1, maybe that will help
