Hi im a uber n00b in linux. I have searched for about 12 hours through the forum to find a solution but im such a noob that i cant execute some of them.
i have a problem with dual booting suse & XP. This is my first time instalation of linux.
Not to waist any time ill tell how i started it all:
I have 2 drives, 30GB and 120GB (ntsf)
The 30GB drive as XP prof on it. so what i did was partition the 30GB hd with partition magic, a partition of 2,2 GB FAT32 (for swapping stuff between the OS's) and another using the "install new os" button a 7GB ext2 drive.
So far so good. Popped in the install CD, i saw on the side bar that i could configure the boot, so i clicked on it and it made me select a boot launcher or something (lilo and grub) i chose grub, then it showed the the bootable things (linux,floppydisk,failsafe etc..) but XP was not in the list. i tried to add it in but because of my none-existent linux knowledge i gave up and thought i could edit it when i have more knowledge about it.
The installation went as supposed to, i even got my Audigy running with all chanels and internet too. but i still couldn't get xp to boot. So i started sniffing around on the net and in linux but it wasnt realy great help
BTW found something like this in the "partition" part of YaST2:
/dev/hda0 (showing props of entire hd)
/dev/hda1 18,9GB Hidden hpfs/ntfs (<-- my win xp drive)
/dev/hda2 2,2GB Extended (nothing showing under the "mount" part EXEPT FOR A: "/")
/dev/hda3 6,8GB Linux native (nothing showing under the "mount" part)
/dev/hda5 2,2GB win95 fat32 lba, (under mount
the specs for the 120GB HD seem normal, i haven't touched it
Now im stuck in Linux (not that i don't like it
, i love it but i really need xp)
So would someone plz help me and explain it in simple steps cuz im a real
