Question Fedora 7 won't boot on dual boot WinXP/F7

Hi! Ok, I was able to get F7 and WinXP to work together on an old Gateway P2 PC.

But on this PC, I'm having the same problem as this guy:

Also, during installation on this box, I'm getting "...Invalid partition table -- wrong signature 0" errors when installing F7.

I'm going to try to pass agp=off to the kernel upon booting (I had to do this when installing) to see if that helps.

Any pointers to solve this problem will be greatly appreciated!

Ok, the system booted after I added agp=off to the kernel parameters. Once in there I was able to configure X and start it with startx.

Now I need to add that agp=off parameter to grub, perhaps edit /boot/grub/grub.conf and add it there?
