    If you are using the GrUB bootloader in Linux have a look at http://www.linuxforums.org/tutorials...ial-19999.html

    If not, what distro are you using?

    Fedora Core

    I just installed Fedora Core 4, T2 and for some reason I didn't even get a menu up asking me to choose which OS to boot. I tried reinstalling GRUB as in the instructions above but I just got an error message "no corresponding BIOS drive". From remembering disk druid, I have got all sorts of weird and wonderful partitions in LogVol00 and LogVol01 and sda1 here and sdb3 there. Is there any way to get it to boot or am I at the point of trashing both my disk drives and starting from fresh?
