Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I know very little about GRUB, but, as far as I can tell, the grub.conf seems correct. I tried changing the Windows HD from (hd1,0) to (hd1) since Windoze is the only OS on that drive, but this made no difference. I didn't think it would.
Both drives are set to LBA in BIOS. I checked this because I've read about people using Fedora Core 2 who had success booting Windoze after changing the setting from Auto to LBA.
What else is interesting is that when I try to boot Windoze, GRUB actually boots FreeDOS instead. For a Windoze boot, the monitor displays
The Windoze booting info seems correct, even though it ends up actually booting FreeDOS. I even checked the Windoze drive just to make sure that, in a moment of insanity, I didn't delete Windows 98 and install FreeDOS on that drive. Window 98 _is_ there.
When I connect the Windoze drive as the Master (and only) drive, Windows 98 boots without a problem.
