Boot loader


I installed win98 and then linux FC3.
But in installation I choosed to don't install GRUB (I forgetted).
So I tried to install GRUB but it says:
Quote:
Couldn't find linux kernel on /dev/hdc1/
SO I wanted to install other but I don't now which!
Guys which one is the best boot loader for fat32.
I want install it on fat32 because I am experimenting with linuxFC3 which is on ext3.
So PLZ help with this what should I coose intall other or try to install GRUB.

I think it's hard to remove GRUB from the master boot record of a single drive system.I have Fedora 3 (RedHat) installed in a Linux LVM in a second partition.

So I use Acronis OS Selector - it will boot any operating system you choose at power-up/reboot, and it has a default if you make no choice. It's a great piece of software. I also use their great TruImage backup/imaging.

It's trivial to uninstall OS Selector and tell it which OS to boot afterwards.
