    Installing Windows 2000 on slave drive


    Hi,
    I'm trying to install Win2k onto an 8 gb slave drive and then get grub to boot from the drive. I already have Ubuntu on the master drive and would like to keep it as the only os on that drive. I already installed win2k on the slave drive by disconnecting the master during setup and then installing. Now I just need to get GRUB to boot to it. Thanks.

    Welcome to the forums sithpigeon

    Try starting Ubuntu, open a terminal and type
    Code:
    sudo nano /boot/grub/menu.lst
    and add the following ...
    Code:
    title Windows
    rootnoverify (hd1,0)
    map (hd0) (hd1)
    map (hd1) (hd0)
    chainloader +1
    Ed: if the above does not work then post the output of
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    the l is a small L.
