I had windows Xp and redhat 7.3 simultanesously running on my PC. but my xp crashed and i had to reinstall it. after i did that whenever i tried to log into linux by selecting it from the boot choices that apperas when my machin boots up( i think it's the xp boot loader)...i get to the GRUB prompt and i don't know how to start up linux from there. however i am able to start linux when i boot through the linux boot disk. please tell me how to correct this problem. i have installed the kernel in /dev/hda3 partition.
