Question Boot to Link Partition

I installed the Auditor live cd to the hardrive. In doing so, I decided to install the boot loader to the root partition and not to the MBR. I was then prompted to create a boot disk.

With the boot disk in (and the disk drive is set to boot first), I rebooted the machine and the windows os booted.

How do I get to the Auditor partition? Or can I even boot into the Auditor partition now?

"How do I get to the Auditor partition? "

Boot the Auditor live CD. Then chroot to your Auditor hard drive partition. Assuming that your Auditor partition is /dev/hda2 and that it is a ext3 partition then the sequence is:

boot Auditor live CD
login as root
mkdir /sparrow
mount -t ext3 /dev/hda2 /sparrow
chroot /sparrow
