Hi, I read that I could boot Linux using a boot loader from windows. I read that I could move the GRUB boot loader into the NTLOADER in the boot.ini file, but this is valid only for Win2000/XP/NT versions. What I wanted to know is where or which is the file equivalent to boot.ini in windowsMe?
As you stated, you can do this with NT and above. With the 9x series, AFAIK, no go. If you want to keep the 9x boot as it is, put grub on your Linux partition and make it bootable. You can select to boot Windows from the grubs menu. To change back, make the Windows partition bootable.
So, in other words I should just move GRUB to the MBR partition? That way I can use GRUB to boot Windows too. Now I use a boot disk in order to boot Linux. This mean that WinMe and below are not able to boot Linux? If this is the case I will move GRUB to the MBR. Do you know how to do this?
The MBR is not a partition, it's the first sector on the hard disk.
With Win95/98, you can dual boot using DOS and loadlin. There is a howto on this at www.tldp.org . Not sure if it still applies to ME, read the howto for details. The howto here: http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/doc...n95-98-ME.html
Which distro are you using?
