Ubuntu - Dual Boot capabilty & GRUB errs
Over one yr ago i tried running a "dual boot" config: Win XP on first HD and Ubuntu on the second. Too often GRUB errs (usually # 17) would occur which required un-install & re-install of Ubuntu to allow access to Win. After several of these disasters i gave up. Ubuntu was removed & not replaced. But hope springs eternal so i'd like to try it again. IMHO there are several choices:
(1) re-install latest & greatest Ubuntu release on second HD determined to continue testing until cause of future possible GRUB err is determined
(2) cowards approach - just run Ubuntu from CD without installing on HD
(3) consider another distro
Any advice will be greatly appreciated since i'd really like to learn abt Ubuntu without tears & fears.
