Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

-How do I change root(hd1,0) to rootnoverify(hd1,0) to allow Windows XP to load from my Suse setup via GRUB? Currently, when I select Windows from the "Which OS" screen, I get a black screen with white letters saying
filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x7
-Secondly where can I find the multimedia update to support MP3 format in Suse?
-Lastly, I need a program to accomidate the installation of MPG files. Anybody?
You have to use the remapping command in grub so the Windows drive is first or else Windows will not boot. I hope SUSE did not install GRUB in the master boot record on the second hard drive too because you are going to have some problems.
Ok, I poked around on google (terms: windows on hdb menu.lst) for a bit and I think you may be able to fix this fairly easily. Check out this thread
The problem this guy was having is a little different from yours and he was using lilo instead of grub. However, I *think* that the post by UsualTuxpect is going to be relevant (although he's talking about grub.conf, which is menu.lst in your case). In short, you can try making the Windows entry read:
map (hd1) (hd0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
The map lines are to trick Windows into thinking that it's on hda.
Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
