My earlier post seems to have disappeared after one reply! At least, I can't find it
Here's the issue - two drives two installs of WinXP - one on each drive (I use one for audio work) - Suse Linux 9.1 on the first drive. I currently access the second drive winXP installation using the boot menu through windows - after selecting the first drive winXP install in Grub.
I would prefer to use just Grub but I am told it apparently needs to be 'fooled' into booting into the WinXP on the second drive.
Here's what I have been given to put into the boot/grub/menu.1st file:
Map (hd0) (hd1)
Map (hd1) (hd0)
The only reply I received suggested I should instead have
What happens, whatever the 'rootnoverify' line says, is that by selecting this option from the grub menu - which should boot my second drive installation of WinXP - is that it boots straight into the first drive installation - without even the menu option I have for windows booting without 'grub'.
