I have dual booted my laptops for years, but never had
the disk space I needed. Now, with a new IBM A31p
with a 60 GB drive, things will be better...or so I
I configured and installed RH8 along with win XP
Pro. Now I learn that linux doesn't work well
(at all?) with NTFS. Others tell me that M$ has been
changing NTFS giving the effect that 3rd party software
doesn't work (so what happened to this new M$
and the court case? rant rant rant).
OK, workaround: just repartition and add a big FAT32
partition so I can share data between linux and windoze.
I did that using partition magic 8, but it failed when
trying to move the linux partition and corrupted the
linux partition. Now grub won't boot because the
config file is gone (I don't think lilo would have
this problem, would it?).
So can anyone help me so I can boot to windows?
I need the probable commands. I think I remember
something like hd and 0,0 for xp and 0,2 for linux
in the config file. Can I type in commands
and boot from grub?
I do not have a boot floppy because the laptop didn't
come with one, but I did make a duplicate xp copy on
a spare drive before starting all this. I will try
and reinstall linux.
Thanks for any help
