Unhappy Rescue Problem.

Ehh, maybe this belongs to distro area or something like that.

So, i am going to install Windows 98SE to my first hd, so it over-write MBR and i dont know how to rescue my RH 7.2 and write GRUB back to MBR, so how do i rescue my RH? root=/dev/hdxx doesn't works anymore.

Look in /boot/grub
There is a file menu.lst that is small l st

Then you can add

title win98
root (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

You can restore the mbr by fdisk /mbr from dos

There is no need to run grus after you alter menu.lst
unlike with lilo.
