Unhappy GRUB stalls on RH9 dual booting XP


Hi all ... newbie here and not having much luck trying Linux RH9.

I've installed and it worked fine, *BUT* then I tried to change the boot order/default in GRUB and since then I cannot load RH9.

I can still boot to XP and can get into RH9 with a floppy disk boot.

Is there anyway I can rebuild GRUB or somehow restore a setting?
My RH9 linux partition is hdb5.

TIA - Paul.

It got bad to worse....tried a few things and ended up removing the partition and re-installing RH9 :-(

umm, that was actually one of my suggestions if you were to tell me anything, because its not all that easy to reinstall grub and get it working again
