After 4 tries I managed to hit the right O/S, so now XP Pro is the default. I wake up & turn on the computer 1st thing to check e-mail, before even my coffee, so I not in any shape to sit there and watch for the Grub to appear and select XP instead of Ubuntu.
So my morings are a little smoother now.
Thanks for the help & advice, especially Syg00 for the exact command. Worked just fine.
The menu.lst file looks interesting, so I've started a thread asking about what else is in there and what it is for.
aysiu, I installed the program from the link (Ext2IFS_1_10b) and installed, but I have no idea what to do next. I wanted to play with Linux from Windows but I managed to run the linux commands. But I would like to start learning this other program. How does it work ?
I can tell this might be an entire thread, so if the answer is complicated, I'll start one rather than letting this thread get way off topic.
It's a filesystem driver so windows will be able to see the linux partition and assign it a drive letter.
Take a look at the FAQ for help on how to set what drive letter windows uses. Other than setting the drive letter you don't need to do anything to get it to work. It's just like having a FAT32 partition but with large file support.
this helped out a loot the command gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst is whats needed in fedora 9. i tried just going through to the file in the file system, and when i opened it up there was nothing there. but after opening terminal and used the gedit command it opened the file where i could edit it. thanks guys.
