I have several partitions with several distro's and XP.
XP is on /dev/hda1 (installation is from a ghosted image of an entire disk installation of XP that was placed lock stock and match on /dev/hda1): with BootMagic or grub or lilo, no problem with XP rewriting MBR
Linux distro's, lilo or grub always placed in root parition (leave mbr untouched)
For the third time with different releases of the business card and netinst, choosing grub and placing it in the root partition seems to be the bestest until i boot into windows and take a look at partition magic-->hda1 bad after a bunch of trying to fixits.
booting into a linux distro and and fdisk -l a bit later reveals that the drive geometry had in fact changed to an unrealistic value (head,sectors).
What's going on?
May try lilo and update, been doing a lil reading.
Would like to use grub on the installation that's devoid of X-Window for use with developing kernels. Since i use make-kpkg instead of the traditional make, make modules, make modules install ... (or whatever, cause i havent in a while) grub is the ideal for checking out new kernel features.
Please Help! Is it something im doing or is it because GRUB is alpha quality software? (It was as of mid 2003 as I checked their site)
as heck about debian
and hopefully not get
and end in
im a two year
Thanks in advance
