***many thanks Ranger, ive printed this and will try later. At moment got another problem !
the HD has windows + 3 diff Linux, and now GRUB has got messed up (dont ask!) giving error17.
ive repaired Mbr with Paragon and now in Win, so what i need is some Utility to re-Setup Grub.
maybe something i can keep on Floppy, for general probing installed Linuxes to set their boot
and Swap file locations. at moment, re-installing any one of them upsets the others.
thanks for any advice. its all a mystery to me.
i just keep throwing bricks at it till something happens
