well......... when I physically installed the drives, I did make sure that the jumper pins were set according to the instructions; one a master (the older one with Windows and Debian OS) and the other a slave (the one designated /home)
I gave Windows XP 120GB, Debian OS 10GB, and 15GB as a swap.
I was wondering though..... is there any way I can re-install Windows XP without having to re-install Debian again? I've spent the last two days configuring my desktop, preferences, and installing software....getting it like I want it. I hate the thought of having to go through all that again just to get GRUB bootloader to work again. When I install Windows after installing Linux, the Windows boot loader takes over, and doesn't recognize that there is a Linux OS.
Can I somehow reinstall GRUB without messing up everything I have worked on?
