Win2k dual boot

Anyone else been able to dual boot linux and win2k, I followed the instructions given to do it, and it hangs when I choose linux. I think its cos the first 512 bits of the confboot.lnx didn't copy for some reason (comes up blank when I view it in note pad!) Any suggestions?

Grrr! The Mighty Grub!

Have a look here .

I've found that if the system has a bootable image, grub will boot it.


oh, also look here for the original (free) version
