what do you think that I have done first
I do not know, what have you tried and what is the problem and what is it you want. Do you have a splashimage in boot. Did you edit /boot/grub/menu.lst?
What Happens?

Hey, joel2001k, don't get an attitude man. In case you didn't know, comprookie2000 was trying to help you. If you don't want people to tell you to do things you've already done, say what you did in your first post with more detail.
