[beginner] linux boot
I've just intalled linux besides windows 98.
When i try to boot, i find myself whith the grub prompt and i can't boot on either OS.
To boot i have to insert the redhat boot floppy and then boot on linux.
I had the files system like this on the HD :
win98,linux /, swap, linux home.
I read that on some old machines like mine Pentium Pro 256 m) you have to install the boot loader on a cylinder lower than the 1024 th.
the first linux starts on the 1029 nd.
But what i don't understand is that grub may be able to reach this cylinder and anyway win98 is on the 1st cylinder?
thanks for help
