Booting GRUB.


I have a Windows XP/ Windows ME system that I recently added RedHat 9 to. If I want to have the option to boot up into any of them, what should my GRUB.conf file say?

ME is on the First Partition, XP on the next, and then Linux on the last

Add this stanza from the GRUB Manual:

# For booting Windows NT or Windows95
title Windows NT / Windows 95 boot menu
root (hd0,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1
# For loading DOS if Windows NT is installed
# chainload /bootsect.dos

Here is the naming convention:
(hd0,0)=/dev/hda1
(hd0,1)=/dev/hda2
