Also when I go into the Hardware Browser and Hard Drives it shows both my 40gb with WInXP and the NTFS file system showing up and the 8gb with Red Hat. The 40gb has a name of hda1 and the 8gb has hdd1, hdd2, hdd3. 1 and 2 are "ext3" and the 3rd is "linux-swap" i don't know if that helps.

Hi everybody,

I have two hard drives one 8gb the other 40gb. On my 40 I have WinXP with an NTFS file system. I downloaded RedHat 9 and made my 8gb my slave drive. I installed Linux on the 8gb thinking that I would get a boot screen so I could select either Windows or RedHat. When I did the computer booted from the hard drive and then froze with the word "Grub". So I unplugged the linux hard drive and tried to boot back into windows. It froze with no word. Now I can only boot to Linux through a linux boot disk. I want to get my windows back because I have alot of important documents on there. I was thinking if I could get access to the windows drive through linux I could copy the files over but I don't know if that would even work because I've tried to fdisk both drives and format but it says that there are no drives. When I put the WinXP CD in to boot it doesn't read it and when I use a boot disk and run in DOS it says setup.exe cannot be run in DOS mode. Please I really need to get back into windows without loosing my data.

Thanks.
