reinstalling grub or reconfiguring it to be put back on the mbr
in order of importance currently the main problem i need help with is to get back grub on the mbr. i have rh9 (shrike) 2.4.20-8 and windows me and grub as the bootloader. maybe due to a windows partition possibly being written to thru linux (by mounting and opening files) windows refused to start and i ended up with only a bsod which had something like IOS(05) in the last line. so i had to do complete reinstall of windows in a new directory. but now when booting from hard disk, only win me loads and the grub does not come up. i made an rh bootdisk and that helps booting into linux, but how long can a floppy exist and over that there are no more pcs around from where i can make a bootdisk. I do have the rh installer cds but i wud like to know if there's a way to get grub back in action.
how do i make sure that when fat32 partitions are loaded in linux they are not written to.
finally, i have scoured the forums and in many posts discussing i have seen where fstab file is discussed some have very few parameters in a line while some include a lot more details (i'm referring only to mounting of fat32 partitions) i mean how much is necessary?
Thanking in anticipation.
