Loaded DSL - unable to boot DSL, only win98


win98se - C, D was loaded with DSL, First shot at trying Linux, and am not sure what to do to be able to dual boot. I think I need a "Boot Disk" to change the MBR? If so is there a generic Grub disk? Win 98se , 233mhz, 1.2 gig "D"

Did you do a "frugal" install? If so, did you follow the wiki for installing grub?

Loaded DSL?

Thanks PLJVALDEZE (Woops- spelling?) for your answer. Idid what I thought is a


frugal install, but no sign of "grub". I went to "My computor" to look at "D" drive but nothing there.

Don't you have to boot from the CD? This is acheived at the Boot selection menu. When your comp starts, it should have one of those things that say F2:Setup, etc. Choose the one for the Boot menu. Then just go down to CD/DVD. That's what i do for all my CDs.
