    ok i did it, can't boot FC2 (fuc*ing windows)

    i did it, i realy did it.
    i've installed windows, i realy did - now not only that it boot but it also works !!! in fact i'm even posting this msg from it now.
    (now before you all think i'm a troll let me tell you the story)

    my ide 0:0 was like this :
    mbr : GRUB - was written during fedora core 2 setup
    hda1 : / 20 GB.
    hda2 : vfat 40 GB.
    swap : 1 GB.

    my ide 0:1 is still like this :
    mbr : none !
    hdb1 : vfat 60 GB.

    what i tried to do is this: setup windows on hdb - force it to create it's mbr on hdb, then boot linux & config GRUB to dual boot, i tried to do this by temporery disabling hda in bios & booting from CD.

    what i did is this: fail (don't ask me how) to disable hda in bios, let windows start it's setup & TRASH AWAY my grub mbr, the rest is bla, bla, bla Welcome to withoutwindows XP.

    now i can't boot into fedora, at all, ohh thank you my lovly ms crap
    btw the xp is on hdb.

    that question is how should i now fix (again) what windows has proken (again) ?

    thank you for your help, i miss my penguin max.
