Grub not loading after installing REDHAT 9
I am new to linux environment. I've a new Hard-Disk. I installed WinXP on that by making a primary partition ("C" drive), and further partitions as FAT as extended partitions on WinXP OS. There's around 17GB left on the Hard-Disk on which I want to install Linux RedHat 9 for Desktop PC (Desktop installation). I booted the system with bootable linux RedHat9 cd, and chosed automatic package installation (minimal recommended). After the installation is over and the system goes for
a reboot, then on rebooting, the window comes as "Grub loading...Stage2"..........and after few minutes Iam getting the Grub prompt "GRUB>........" menitioning Grub is having minimal editing options.......
I create below partitions for Linux RedHat9, during installation:
/ -- root partition of 6000 MB of type ext3
/boot -- of 128 MB of type ext3
/home -- of 5000 MB of type ext3
/usr -- of 5000 MB of typr ext3
/swap -- of 384 MB
My System's Config:
Compaq, Pentium III, Processor 1GB (999 MB), RAM - 192 MB
Hard-Disk (seagate 160GB IDE)
Iam not getting the dual booting window after the reboot, where I can select which OS i can select to start with. Might be, something is not loading correctly or I am missing something that's why the GRUB is not coming up properly for me.
Kindly help me if you have any ideas, to get this resolved..
Any help or idea will be highly appreciated....
Thanks in advance
