I am running 2 hard drives one is my winxp drive the other has some xp stuff but has linux on it. i changed the linux hard drive size to 5mb so i could install Red Hat 8. now i boot to the Grub thing and it lists Red Hat and DOS. when i click on dos i get a disk read error. i can boot to red hat and it works but i am incapible of gettin into windows XP. if you can reply with the right grub commands or advise that would be great and if im out of luck just say so so i cant go cry in the corner.
thank you for your time. ohmy.gif
