Thanks for getting back so quickly.
It's just a normal boot disk (floppy) i made when prompted to do so after installation of Red Hat 8. I've never been able to get grub to work, and always, on boot just get GRUB in the top corner of the screen and neither OS will boot. Would love to get it working though if poss.
If it helps here is my spec:
gigabyte 8ipe1000pro motherboard (intel 865pe)
1024mb 2100 ram
40gb hd on ide 0 master - linux installed
120gb serial ata hd ide 3 (currently disconnected (holding xp) as red hat 8 won't install without new kernal, a job i will do after installation)
