Hello I'm trying to dual boot Gentoo with Win XP. I can't get it to work on grub but I was succesful in LILO. Here's the scenario, Win XP is on my first drive (/dev/hda) and linux is on my seconf (/dev/hdb)
here's the complete layout:
In grub I did this:
1. Wrote the appropriate grub.conf
title=Gentoo Linux 2.6.11-r3
kernel /kernel-2.6.11-gentoo-r3 root=/dev/hdb3
2. in grub prompt:
setup (hd1) //install it on mbr of second drive
When I do this I can't boot into windows
On lilo however having just this lilo.conf works perfect!
root=/dev/hdb # Install LILO in the MBR
prompt # Give the user the chance to select another section
timeout=50 # Wait 5 (five) seconds before booting the default
default=gentoo # When the timeout has passed, boot the "gentoo"
label=gentoo # Name we give to this section
read-only # Start with a read-only root. Do not alter!
root=/dev/hdb3 # Location of the root filesystem
