commands work with interactive grub, but not in grub.conf
I have win98 on hda, and RH8.0 on hdb. I have GRUB, installed by 'grub-install /dev/hdb'. When I use grub interactively, from a grub floppy, the commands
kernel /boot/vmlinuz ro root=/dev/hdb1 hdd=ide-scsi
get me into linux just fine. Same commands in /etc/grub.conf cause errors.
interactively, when I type root (hd1,0)
filename type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
which makes sense, 'cause that's what it is.
non-interactively (booting from the second HD using bios), I get
filesystem is fat, partition type is 0x0c
then the 'kernel' command exits with a 'file not found' because I have apparently set root to the windows partition, which is on hd0, I thought.
Anybody know what is going on?
