need a little help with grub
i had a dual boot set up with FC2 and winXP.
i reformatted my linux drive from within windows (getting rid of linux for more storage space)
now when i boot it tries to load grub and then just sits there. it never actually gets into the grub menu's
is there a "safe mode" of sorts for grub that will allow me to fix this?
or should i just wipe my MBR clean and then try to fix windows?
