I installed RH 9 on to a new hd(the box has 3) I bought . Thinking my bios would not let me boot from this new drive I elected to not install grub on it and continue to boot from the original device (grub there as well). Discovering that bios will boot from this drive I decided to install grub on it (/boot) .
The grub-install seems to work . When I try to boot I get a nice splash screen. When I pick the OS I want I get 'file not found'.
I have grub on a floppy that boots fine .

Any suggestions?

Hi.

It sounds like grub.conf hasn't been configured.

Post the contents of /boot/grub.conf (from your hard drive),

and the output from
#ls /boot

and post which partition /boot is on (hdc1 or whatever)

Dave
