hey everyone, first post on linuxquestions.
SO heres my situation. I got an old P2 box from a friend, threw ubuntu server 9.10 on it. The bios is so old that it wont play nice with grub2. and i dont wanna burn another disc to get a legacy ubuntu server.

operating system not found
but when i boot into the install cd and boot from first hard disk, it goes fine.

my only other option right now is to install some VM software and install a legacy linux.
right now im following this guide:
