Question Dual Booting Windows 98 and SUSE 9.1

Hi all,

I have SUSE 9.1 installed on my computer. I would like to add my Windows 98 drive to this computer. How do I go about doing this? I'm using GRUB as my bootloader and here is a section of my menu.lst file:

title Linux
kernel (hd0,1)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 vga=0x31a splash=silent desktop resume=/dev/hda1 showopts
initrd (hd0,1)/boot/initrd

title Windows 98
root (hd1,0)
chainloader +1

Whenever I try to boot to Windows it just stops at a blank screen. Is there a way I can boot Windows from the slave drive?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to LQ.

Try a map first:

title Windows 98
map (hd1) (hd0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
root (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
