No idea sorry. You might want to try an XP forum if there is such a thing.

Im not sure I understand what is happening.

I think to get windows and Linux to install together in a duel boot situation you need to install windows 1st then Linux.

i did have windows installed first, i had win2k on one partition and xp pro on another with a 60gig one for media. i formatted the xp pro to run redhat 9 and then left the win2k for the dual boot.

Are you able to log into the Linux partition?

Check out this link:
http://www.dewassoc.com/kbase/multiboot/li...x_win2k_fix.htm

It has to do with where your boot loader is set. This artical talks about Lilo and it sounds like you are using GRUB, but I think that the theory is the same. The linux boot loader will over write NTLOADER if placed in the Master boot record. It would have to be placed on a /boot partition.

Im just a newbe so maybe I don't know what I'm talking about. Anybody else have any thoughts?

Keep us up to date on what happens
