Angry Grub Boot Problem


i HAVE 3 HARD DRIVES, 2 WITH XP AND ON WITH MANDRAKELINUX
THE LINUX BOOTS FINE AND FIRST XP BOOTS FINE FROM GRUB, THESE 2 DRIVES ARE MASTER AND SLAVE.
THE THIRD DRIVE IS ON THE SECONDARY MASTER IDE ON THE MOTHER BOARD.
HERES THE WIERD PART, IF I GO INTO THE BIOS AND SET THE THIRD DRIVE TO BOOT FIRST IT STARTS UP FINE BUT WHEN I WHEN SWITCH THE BIOS BACK TO THE THE DRIVE GRUB IS ON AND TRY TO BOOT THE THIRD DRIVE FROM THE GRUB CONSOLE IT TELLS ME THAT MY NTLDR IS MISSING. SO I KNOW XP MBR IS FINE. HOW DO FIX THE PROBLEM WITH GRUB?

This has been discussed previously in this forum. Although I never tried it myself, you should try the map option in grub. See: http://portal.suse.com/sdb/en/2002/0...grub_win1.html

(I guess this applies to grub in general, not only SUSE)
