Question installed fc6 on seperate partition, same hard drive with xp, fc6 wont boot


I recently installed fedora core 6 on the same hard drive as winxp. I installed on seperate partition, that I built using acronis disk dir. Install went fine but now I cannot get fedora to boot, even when using dual OS program on disk dir. I should also mention that my hard drive is SATA that is run through PCI host card (my mainb board only supports IDE)I'm sure this is where my problem is. Maybe using a boot disc would help? Any suggestions would help thanx

yes-you can make a grub boot disk and install grub on the MBR of your hard disk with it, if you want to.

or, you can type out the commands of your grub.conf file manually each time the grub floppy boots, as I do ..

Shrikant has a point there, I am afraid :-(

But, at the same time, we have grown to respect and expect more from this community so much that the possibility of a limited, or no response, to our queries make us fret and fume :-)
