you can try Plop bootmanager
thats what I use...
the thing you want is called plpbt.bin or plpbt
it doesnt install or anything, just boots stuff
plpbtin, plpbtin.img, etc install to MBR
you can use the one I use which is plpbt
I made a floppy out of plpbt.img(floppy) and then skanked
the executable as sometimes plpbt.bin doesnt work as good?
anyway, if you want mine> Link > plpbt
and heres grub menu.lst entry for it
title Plop bootmanager
thats assuming its on partition 1 (hd0,0)
it works good on my 3 computers, 2 of which have no BIOS support
for usb boot at all
Thank you very much for your suggestion. I already have Ubu9.04 on part 1&2. Will this fix work with that config? I'm reading the doc at the site but if you can give a succinct answer, it would be appreciated. There's a reason I posted in the newbie forum.
