Hi all, another newb here.
I tried to install Ubuntu on my machine a few days ago. A friend of mine recogmended it to me, but I'm a Linux virgin. I have a fairly old Dell, and apparently Ubuntu doesn't like Dell all that much, and vice versa. So I'm resigned to trying a different Linux version (just tried RedHat Fedora core - that failed too, Knoppix Live CD worked though)
However, when I boot up, the default boot it goes to is Ubuntu, which crashes at one of the initializing componenent parts. I need to either remove the GRUB loader completely (version 0.95) or at least change it to boot into Windows XP by default.
If, while you're telling me how to fix this, you care to tell me which Linux version might be best for me too, that'd be even better
Thanks very much in advance. I know repeated newbie questions can be a pain. If you have a flame-squad - yes, I have Google'd it, and yes I did look around your other threads. Pretty sure what I need is not easily found on Google, and I apologise if I've missed it here.
