Tried booting from GBUB using smp kernel and went black screen & nothing had to RESET to get back to grub screen, tried non smp same thing reset tried windows & HUNG trying to load could't get to safe mode. Power off & restarted. Then grub hosed the MBR and couldn't boot windows or Linux. Ran FIXMBR to get windows going for family but could NOT recover Linux. Might try re-installing but make CD_ROM for boot disk. ANY SUGGESTIONS
