Question about reboot!!!!!!!


i have dual system on my IBM laptop, winxp and RH linux 9.0. Now i find that if restart computer from windows to linux, can not get into the welcome login screen of linux. the screen is just blank and stay there. If i reboot from linux or power on the computer to linux, no problem.
I even re-install linux, still can not solve.

anyone has same experience?

regards

What bootmanager are you running? If's it's lilo, please post your lilo.conf file, if it's grub, please post your grub file -- J.W.

I use GRUB.
The following is Grub.con

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,6)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda7
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=1
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,6)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8)
root (hd0,6)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/
initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.20-8.img
title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

The follwoing is from /var/log/messages
I believe the ERROR at the last line is the reason because the time is when my system can not boot up. But i do not know what its meaning and how to solve. Is it a service? if so, where to stop that service?
