Fedora Core 1 Boot problem :-\


I know this has pobobally been asked TONS of times but one more wont hurt...




I get through the Fedora Core 1 install.........everything goes smoothly, i go to reboot ,and when the prompt come sup, it says GRUB, and nothing happens. Im forced to reboot, and try again........


i started with a Automatic particion of my shd2 drive (i have 4 drives.........hd1, shd2, shd3, shd4) and put GRUB loader on the main hd1..........when it boots up, nothing.......


so i went ahead and dd another auto particion......changed the GRUB file to the secondary boot.......still nothing


i got a READ ERROR once.........but never again yet.....


im a super nub when it comes to Linux........picked this up at a lcoal Computer show the other day.........

You get a black screen with a grub sort of command line? Erm. You shouldnt get that when you boot the first time, you should get a graphical one with choices. Hmmmm. Odd. Do you have a /boot partition? Or on your Fedora core partition do you ahve a /boot folder? If so, you have to use the graphical splash screen and you'll get the choices, but i dont know if its gonna be there...
