GRUB doesn't "see" Windows 98
I installed RedHat 9 on a seperate partition behind Win 98. However, GRUB only shows my RedHat OS, and not Win. I researched this but can't seem to find anything that makes sense. The partitions are there, so I assume the Win OS is still in tact and its a configuration prob. Any ideas? BTW Win 98 is FAT32.

How about posting your grub configuration file and maybe we can see what's wrong.

Does your grub-file (/boot/grub/grub.conf) contain the information to start Win98? I have Windows 2000 and Rehat 8.0 on my harddisk and my grub-file looks like this:

title Win2000
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-14)
root (hd0,5)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-14.img

You can edit your grub-file manually. If your Window 98 is on the first Partition, and you are missing the Start-Information in your grub-file, you can add the following 3 Lines to your grub-file (below or in front of the 4 Red Hat Linux-Lines):

title Win98
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

If your Windows isn't on the first partition, you have to modify "rootnoverify (hd0,0)". Consult the manual.
