Interesting Windows problem means I can't boot XP & Linu
Got a problem that SEEMS easy to fix because its such a simplistic problem, but I can't fix it. Here goes:
I bought a brand new laptop, and re-partitioned it to run my copy of SuSE Linux 8.2. Install went fine, Linux is up and running. However, I can't boot Win XP anymore - because the partitions have changed, the "boot.ini" file now points to the wrong partition and won't load Windows. The only way I can edit this file is from Windows - but I can't get into Windows. Linux can see the file, but can't edit it because its an NTFS file system and doesn't have write access to it (thanks a lot for keeping the details of a pretty amateur file system to yourself, Microsoft). My laptop didn't come with a bootable Win XP CD, and it doesn't have a floppy drive.
Basically, how the hell can I edit this file? Are there any bootable CD images that let you boot into something I can access the Windows CD from, like boot into DOS?
