This post may seem a little redundant to the old "pros", but I'm a real newbie and would like a bit of help, if someone could spare some time?
My problem is I loaded Ubuntu onto a computer with two hard drives hd0 is WindozeXP and hd1 is Ubuntu. I've tried several different boot loaders but I can't get Ubuntu to run. From searching and reading articles, I believe my problem is with GRUB, but I am unsure where to go next?
Thanks in advance.
I seems I spoke tooo soon on my Post.
I did a little more searching and read some more, and then I took the Ubuntu install CD and tried reloading to the same drive, and for some unknown reason, it worked as it was supposed to this time?
And I guess GRUB is really what you call a boot loader...I thought that I needed something like OSL2000 or such, but GRUB does that.
I do thank you for your reply. I'm an old phart, retired after having done a lot of communications type stuff, with a fair amount of Windoze applications over the years, so it'll be a bit before I get my head around Linux.
Now to figure out how to get a compiler working???
