- Windows XP is on the master Hard Drive and alwasy has been sense i recieved the computer from Dell
- Fedora Core 3 (recievied from my programming teacher at achool) is on the Slave Drive (i think this is my problem but before switching the drives and possibly causing more damage i want to consult the Gurus here) and has been there sense noon jan 8
- P4 1.8 ghz
- I did get oen error during instalation about the Office Sutie but it retryed and was fine
Now to the problem. When starting the system for the first time (and all the times following) i see the normal DELL screen that shows up before i see BIOS. I could hit F2 for Setup and F12 for Boot Options at this point but neither seem to affect what happens next. The BIOS loads and shows me a black screen except for one word in the top left. GURB. Nothing I press or do affects the computer and i know it is recieving the signals because i hear the sytem beeps. I tired hitting enter and restarting multiple times but nothin happens
. I cannot boot from diskettes or cds because i cant even acces the Boot Menu. This is kind of spooky and disapointing as i was looking foreward to using linux.
