Hi Friends,

I have my system installed with Red hat Linux and Microsoft Windows XP. While i was working in linux, i changed the grub.conf to default as microsoft Windows and changed the timeout to 0, now i am unable to go to linux. What shall i do to solve this?

Regards,

download or create a boot disk for linux (or perhaps you can boot off the install CD and get to a command prompt?), and then go into grub.conf and change the timeout to 10 or so. Give yourself a little time to remember to pick your OS....

Use your installation cd to boot into linux rescue and make the changes in the grub.conf just as jeffreybluml suggested.

Futhermore, RH should mount your root partition at /mnt/sysimage. So be sure to edit the correct file i.e. /mnt/sysimage/etc/grub.conf file (is this correct file location?).
