switchign from suse 9.0 to slack 10 booting issues ensue...


i recently switched from Suse 9.0 pro to Slack. after i rebooted after slack installation the boot was set to the NTFS section of the HD so it tried to load Grub the suse boot thing. it starts to load then just sits there. I was wondering if there was anyway to remove grub from the ntfs partition. i dont have a floppy drive either and i cant boot to ANY OS right now.
Any help would be awesome and greatly appreciated.

Linux - Software isn't the best place to post this question. Try posting it in the general forum.

As for your question, if you have a CD burner avilaable somewhere on a working computer you can download Knoppix and burn that onto a CD. It's basically Linux on a bootable CD and should allow you to go in and remove grub.
