redhat7.2/win2k/grub problem!


i got a bit excited and jumped the gun on setting up a dual boot. i have a 60gig drive divided into two partitions of 30, where win2k and apps "c:" and documents "d:" live.

then i set up a 20gig (lets call it "L:") that i installed redhat 7.2 onto - but in my excitement to get going i installed grub on "c:" - yeah, i know, that was stupid.

my question is: what now? reformat and fixmbr?

also, - what books do you recommend for linux newbies (i have redhat linux administrator's handbook, and redhat linux 7.2 unleashed).

thanks in advance,
ian.
