then save the file

close it

then as root user again

/sbin/lilo

to make the changes take effect
I've got a pretty similar problem - could you help me out too? Because I guess this "kedit xx" command works for KDE environment; what do I (in GNOME) need to type in order to open that file for once (I messed something up and GRUB doesn't boot WinXP). Thanks.

Ok, I've figured out it's the "gedit" command.
So is hda2 - (hd1,1)??
My XP is on hda2, which in HW Browser extends to a single branch named hda5; for what purpose I don't really know. Now, what do I type in grub.conf, this:
...
rootnoverify (hd1, 4)
makeactive
>>do I need to use the "map" command? what's it for anyway?<<
chainloader +1

?
