Trouble installing Grub


Have an older HP Pavilion with Win98SE installed on the master 10 gig HDD, and Puppy installed on the second 6 gig slave HDD. What do I need to install Grub on this setup? I'm currently booting into Puppy using a floppy boot disk that I made while in Puppy. Plain English please, geek speak will just get me confused. Thanks.

So what exactly is your problem??

http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/grub.html is your friend for starters, you'll find a lot you need to know there.

Boot up puppy.
Install grub (It is in the puppy start up menu) and choose simple then choose install mbr.

If you canít boot after this. Insert a win98se floppy boot disk and type fdisk /mbr

To make this clear we need a simple diagram to show the flow of startup.
Can anybody suggest where ?

ie Switch on ->Bios values read->MBR record read?->next area read->next area read->Your own pup_save.3fs read->kde saved session read->kde Autostart read

Is this something like how it goes?

I am not exactly sure with any more detail that this ...

power -> bios -> grub -> and then whatever partition & files that you have pointed to in your grub conf file.

you shouldn't need to more than that for most functions.
