Hello everyone. I am a complete noob
I recently loaded RedHat 9 on an HP P3-450. With Gnome, it is running very slow. When I try to run OpenOffice apps, they take forever to load. Anyhow, I would like to try a different distro and dual boot this time with Windows 2000 (yeah, I know) until I can get used to Linux.
When I tried to rm the partitions, Grub still comes up as GRUB>. I reloaded RH again so that I can boot.
I have been searching on this forum for a couple hours and pretty much everyone has been saying to put in a windows boot cd and use fdisk/mbr.
Here is where I am having trouble. I put the disk in, restart my computer, and grub takes over without allowing the disk to boot. I have already changed the settings in the bios to allow the floppy to boot first. I have also tried a windows boot cd. I know this topic has been beat to death, but if anyone knows a way that I can start over fresh, I would really appreciate the help. I am not worried about losing any data, so I can completely wipe the whole disk.
