    Okay, I finally got to burning GRUB to a disk. I booted into it, and tried selecting every option I could to boot into mandriva, but every time I selected to boot it, it just restarted my computer.

    I tried selecting "Restore GRUB to MBR", and that didn't do anything. I also tried doing reinstall grub on a partition and choose the mandriva partition and then boot into it, but that didn't do anything either =(.

    I think I will just reinstall Mandriva and hope that will fix things. Unless someone knows what is wrong with GRUB =p.

    Okay well, I just reinstalled Mandriva, and after restarting, it just boots right back into windows (after a slightly longer boot-up time) =(.

    Should I be selecting to install GRUB to hda? Or hda5 (which is the linux partition)?

    Thanks!

    Did you change anything in Boot Loader section during installation? try SuperGRUB CD again to install GRUB/Lilo.

    No luck =(.
    I tried the SuperGRUB CD again, but still nothing happened. When I press "Try to fix MBR" or whatever and select my linux partition the computer just restarts. When it's done with the BIOS startup XP's boot loader takes a little whiel longer ot startup (I'm guessing it's restoring it's own bootloader to the MBR or something), and then it just loads XP like normal =(.
