Unhappy Dual booting into windows 2k


ok heres the problem im faced with..


When the grub pops up at boot it gives me a choice between


Fedora core 2
Windows 2000

I want to get back into windows cause well until someone can fix my video drivers then im stuck.

so i click on Windows 2000


And it gives me this

title Windows 2000
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
makeactive
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
chainloader +1
boot

note beofre i added the makeactive, map, boot commands i could hit clt+alt+del and restart the computer but now it just sits there like a Microsoft program worthless



and it dose nothing

other the other crap is what i saw on the websites to try.


so heres the thing i have to much to lose on the other drive.

I think cause my master Hard drive is the one with windows and its loading the slave first this may be the problem.. but then again i wouldnt be here if i knew what i was talking about.

if anyone has a clue on how to get this to work or smack it around or anything


Plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!

hi
I would suggest you to remove the "makeactive" and "boot" commands.
Try again. It should be fine.
