    Boot to hda5 wtich is Linux


    Two days work-Stuck

    Linux Installed ok because Explore2fs running on XP can read file system OK.
    http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/linux/explore2fs.htm

    I can't figure how to boot hda5-laptop has no floppy drive.

    I did not, and do not want to, change MBR--put it on hda5 also.
    My boss would kill me if he saw LILO come up on company laptop.
    Any one has any suggestions.

    Can I use Knoppix or SystemRescueCd to boot hda5.

    Should I be able to boot it with SUSE distribution disk?

    just use a boot cd rather than a boot floppy, boot to grub or lilo and then boot to your hda5
    Operating System: GNU Emacs
