Cannot get grub to function right
I have a dual-boot system. Windows Professional was installed first then Ubuntu 7.10 finished the system. As it stands 7.10 boots first. I would prefer that Windows boot first.
I read an APC article listing the arrangement of Windows then Ubuntu. It applied to 7.04 but I assumed (probably in error) that the same command would apply to 7.10 because the installation worked the same for 7.10 as it did for my old 7.04. It said to let Ubuntu load, go into Applications, Accessories, Terminal, and type "sudo gedit/boot/grub/menu.1st" (w/quotes).When I type this all I get is "command not found". There is a screen supposed to show which I can edit by changing either numbers or default settings to get Windows to boot and 7.10 to be the choosable alternate. Screen won't pull up. Ican change nothing.
So.....I went back to the original startup screen and tried to change something on that menu that would. Nothing happened.
Gentlemen I need some advice. As you can see I simply don't know what I'm doing. I choose to stop now before I wreck two perfectly functioning systems.
Your advice please.
