Dual boot, two disk Fedora Windows only opens Windows
I tried to set up a dual-boot system with Windows XP on one disk and Fedora 5 on the other. For some reason, the installation DVD doesn't install GRUB. When I try to install Grub via the Repair mode or the Rescue CD, it explicitly tells me that the Kernel wasn't written, and that Grub won't go in.
The strangest thing is that other distributions (Debian and Ubuntu) installed GRUB with no difficulty. When I tried to install GRUB using one of these and then installing Fedora, the system simply hung when I tried to boot.
The most frustrating thing is that I can't get into Fedora to install GRUB manually.
I would prefer to use the Fedora distribution, because the hardware installs more easily than Debian, and it has much more flexibility than Ubuntu.
Answers to similar posts didn't solve this problem for me.
