GRUB problems...


I had Fedora Core 1 running on my Toshiba Satellite Pro m15-s405. It was wonderful. However, the laptop came with WinXP pre-installed and all that and for x reason I had to use the Recovery CD.. after that was done, I rebooted the computer and I got the GRUB command prompt... I tried:

> makeactive
> rootnoverify (hd0)
> chainloader +1
> boot

and it just got me back to the same place...

does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks in advance

Please don't double post. Post in the appropriate forum and only there. This was posted at in the Laptop forum. BTW, it should be 'rootnoverify (hd0,0)' like the link says.
