How to make a linux boot disk/CD
Hello, I have an Athlon64 system with two hard disks. A 120GB primary disk with Windows XP Pro installed on it. And a 60GB slave drive with Fedora Core 4 64-bit on it. Ok, so I put the boot loader, GRUB, on the Linux drive and not on the MBR of the primary disk. Well now I can't get Linux to boot of course. I go into boot option and select the secondary drive too boot from, but it will just go to black screen for a second then boot Windows. How can I make a boot disk to boot to Linux. I didn't see an option in the install process.
If I do install the boot loader on the MBR of hda I assume it will overwrite the Windows bootloader? If for some reason later I want to remove the Linux install by removing or wiping the second drive will I be able to load Windows still?
How can I get the Windows Boot Loader to boot the Linux install?
Thanks for any help. I'm trying to test the Linux waters out and see how it runs on my machine.
