hi all,

i am new to linux. just installed redhat 7.3. i am wondering how do you dual boot when linux is on the primary harddisk and winxp is on the secondary harddisk. i am using grub btw. thanks in advance.

I am not to familar with grub but edit the menu.1st file in the boot directory and change the windows listing to the second drive / partition setting.

If winxp is on your secondary HD is the 1st controler slave 1st partition then it would be
(hd1,0)

I believe.

biggrin.gif for booting if u have menu of OS there then just press enter and u can boot with that OS...

but i think u have asked about configuring GRUB...if u have installed RHDL 7.3 already and want to proceed with windows installation...then don't forget to make a boot disk...and u can edit grub.conf file for changing the boot settings...but still i will suggest u install xp on primary and linux on slave...
