    anyone using Bootit NG


    I want to use Bootit NG as my boot manager ( at present use LILO - in the MBR ) As i have had no success in putting my linux bootloader in its own partition.

    My setup is like this:
    Main drive (C) WinXP ( 28 Gb with a 2 Gb download partiton (E)
    My second drive (G) Mandrake 10.0 (8 Gb)

    I have read the manual for Bootit NG, but dont quite follow how i set it up for my linux drive, I know i have to resize a partiton (8Mb) for Bootit NG, In the manual they recommend NOT putting the linux bootloader ( either GRUB or LILO ) in the MBR. ( to late its already in there ).

    Is there a way to set Bootit NG up without a re-install.

    So any help with this will be appreciated

    Cheers

    You can try XOSL.
    With Linux's Grub in the first sector of root partition.
    You are the one Linux!

    When You installed linux boot loader in its own partition, did you make THAT partition active? If NOT, try doing it first.

    My setup is like this:
    Main drive (C) WinXP ( 28 Gb with a 2 Gb download partiton (E)
    My second drive (G) Mandrake 10.0 (8 Gb)
    Did you make the SecondDrive *FIRST* in BOOT SEQUENCE of BIOS? If NOT, Try this out first.
