Tell us which partition is what as in Vista and XP.
Sorry I couldn't understand what u meant but know I acquired a lil more knowledge.
Ok the grub conf file in the grub dir is called "menu.lst" I tried to edit it but I can't, not even with super user permission ( I activated the "su" and still access denied).
And for /sbin/fdisk -l:
Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xd0f4738c
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 7649 61440561 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 * 7650 11474 30720000 7 HPFS/NTFS
Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda3 11475 11723 2000092+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda4 11724 14593 23053275 83 Linux
XP is on (hd0,0) I believe and is not listed as a Other OS in the conf file of grub, but since can't edit it I cant add it.
I don't know what to do.
Heres the content:
