Did I write GRUB over part of Windows?

So I have RedHat 9 installed, dual booted with Windows XP Pro. I haven't used the windows side of the box in like 2 or 3 weeks. Anyway, I recompiled the kernel using the 2.4.22 source. Now when I try to boot into what GRUB has listed as DOS (i.e. my windows side), the screen just shows what is in the grub.conf file.

rootnoverify (hd0,0)

chainloader +1


That's all it does. It just hangs there. Do I have to reinstall windows?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you have mentioned how to amended added your sweet kernel.

post your partition info and your /etc/fstab file. In the meantime I will assume win is on hda1 and go into linux and edit your /boot/grub menu 1 file

root (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

dont try this if you have no tested linux boot floppy
