    well,when you boot to linux rescue your root filesystem is mounted at some mount(usually at /mnt/sysimage)
    so by using chroot /mnt/sysimage your root directory is changed to that of /mnt/sysimage
    I guess you would be told that at the end of the boot process...

    regards

    i used "FIXMBR" after booting with windows installation cd on command prompt... and after that, i couldn't boot with windows... and i booted with linux rescue cd and mount the linux installation and used "chroot" and "grub-install"... and it goes back to the start...

    OK... i was using "partition magic". there was an option called "install a new operating system". i clicked it. and under the instructions, i created a new linux partition, and inactivated the windows partition as required. and after i installed linux, i can't get access to windows anymore...

    so if i boot with windows installation cd, i can see the partitions as follows:

    F: Partition1 (Incactive (OS/2 Boot Man16308 MB ( 6238 MB free)
    C: Partition4 [NTFS] 10001 MB ( 5214 MB free)
    D: Partition5 [NTFS] 40006 MB ( 16321 MB free)
    G: Partition2 [unknown] 103 MB ( 101 MB free)
    -: Partition3 (Windows XP Fault Tolera 9899 MB ( 9899 MB free)

    edit: and there's no hard disk management in the bios on this machine... so do you recommend me to use any hard disk management software or burn any rescue cds using the software to reactivate the windows partition?

    hi J Dizzle !!

    Boot Magic didnt come up. it means, using Partition Magic, you just deactivated windows partition and didnt install Boot Magic. you didn't create rescue disks of partition magic either. first check this link and read carefully. http://www.techspot.com/vb/all/windo...partition.html

    download Ultimate Boot CD. this is link. http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html
    in UBCD menu ... choose F3 and then F option. now i am sure, you can reactivate partition.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
