Question yes another grub question


Hello,

I have red hat 9 on one hard disk and win 98 and winnt dual boot on other.
One is primary master and other is primary slave
Since i have added the second disk, i need help in setting up grub to let me add entry for the second hard disk which should show the nt bootloader

Any step by step help or a link help will be appreciated.

try this in /boot/grub/grub.conf

Quote:
title DOS
rootnoverify (hdX,Y)
chainloader +1
where X the hard drive number 0 :first , 1:second ..... you will use 1
and Y the partition number where is installed your NT loader

i hope

try this:
-------------------------
root (hd0,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1
-------------------------
replace hd0,0 with your numbers ....

i must say that i never tried this coz i didn'd have a second drive
if still doesn't work you i must say u should try : info grub and start reading ... good luck , sorry if i can't give you the right solution
