  1. I know that Windows and Linux can share files. My drive set is as follows(I'm sure y'all are sick of me by now). two 40gig drives, hd0 and hd1 hd0 is 25gig(1st partition) for MP3's and such, formatted as FAT32, 15gig partition for FC4 hd1 is 1 partition, NTFS for windows XP. XP see's the FAT32 drive, but not the Linux partition(like normal). Linux however... doesn't even SEE the FAT32 drive.. There's just some MP3's I wanna take over to the linux side, no biggy. Thanks -4thgen
  2. That is correct. I was speakin to Kyle via IM(sorry.. don't know your SN here) and kamikazelemmings. I got hooked up. The code is actually.. map (hd0)^(hd1) map (hd1)^(hd0) ^ is a space(duh) Y'all rock. Thanks
  3. Hrm.. The map command didn't seem to work. I have this. map (hd0,0 hd1,0) map (hd1,0 hd0,0) rootnoverify (hd1,0) chainloader +1 And it throws Error 11: Unrecognized Device String
  4. Ok. The 2 drives are this(how linux sees them) Linux -> hdd0 XP ->hdd1 XP is the only partition on that drive(full drive dedicated to XP) the loader would then say this below the Title Windows XP map (hd0,0 hd1,0) map (hd1,0 hd0,0) rootnoverify (hd1,0) chainloader +1 I didn't know about the mapping drives thing. I've done multiple boots before, but never between 2 drives. **EDIT** Sorry.. I read my reply above..it's wrong. I typed ,2 for the XP drive(like it's partitioned) but it's not. It should be ,0(No partition) LOL.. sorry.
  5. OK. Here's my current grub.conf file. default=1 timeout=15 splashimage=(hd0,1)/grub/splash.xpm.gz hiddenmenu title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4) root (hd0,1) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet initrd /initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.img title Windows XP rootnoverify (hd1,0) chainloader +1 This was working once. I was able to load XP and Fedora. I tried again, and it crashed. My Linux drive is hd0, and windows is hd1. The map entry the should say.. map (hd1,0) (hd1,2) map (hd1,2) (hd1,0) rootnoverify (hd1,2) chainloader +1
  6. Sorry.... not totally following your DTTL/PTFL...WTF is that? PC2700? If it's all good and a decent $$ I'll take it
  7. Hallo y'all. I found this place during a google search for dual boot issues(grub.conf syntax). Haven't corrected it yet(as I'm not at home) but I think I figured out the issue already. Anyway.. I'm Tim. Currently working as a Asst. supervisor at a multi-ISP tech support facility. In 2 weeks, I'll be working as a NOC tech in one of the ISPs that I currently do support for. I gots me an AS in CNIT, persuing my BS in same field, hoping to become a CCNP, about to get my CCNA here in about 1mths time. My computer setup is as follows. P4 2.0ghz 2 40gig drives -1 for XP -1 for mp3's, downloads, and 15gig partitioned for Linux 256meg PC2700 DDR RAM SCSI 12x burner 52x CDROM Nvidea GeForce 256 RAM vid card Not the best, but I'm working on it. I need some more RAM BADLY!(can't play Doom3).
  8. Hey y'all. I found this place from a google search of XP and Fedora boots.(nice walkthru BTW) Anyways.. a bit of background. I'm not a total newb.. I have a AS in CNIT, currently persuing my BS, and work as a Network op tech at an ISP for anything and everything internet related. Computer background. 2 hard drives, hdd1 and hdd2 I can't rely remember but I think hdd2 is my winxp drive, and hdd1 is my mp3's and install files, and also for linux. thru the linux install, I choose the dual boot option, put the linux grubloader into the hdd2 drive. My BIOS is set to try to boot from hdd1, then hdd2. It'll boot up to the linux drive, ask which OS(Fedora or WinXP). I'll choose Fedora and it'll work 100% without problems. However, when I choose winXP, it comes back and says *invalid ntbootldr, press CTRL ALT DEL to restart*. If I change the BIOS boot to hdd2, then hdd1 -> I'll get only winXP. Now my question. I followed the install directions to the T based upon my training and exp, as well as what the howto said to do). I still don't have a TRUE dual boot session. Would it be easier to move the XP bootloader to the Linux drive? Or the Linux bootloader to the XP drive? Is this possible to do without reinstalling the Linux OS? Finally, WTF did I do wrong?
