no boot loader after Fedora 5 install
I am attempting to install fedora core 5 to dual boot with xp home.
Xp was previously installed on an ide hard drive and I installed FC 5 on a sata hard drive. At the end of the installation process, right before the request to reboot I see the boot loader being installed. When I reboot the machine,it boots directly to windows. I don't see grub.
I have searched this forum for this problem and found advice offered at this thread, to install grub to the mbr. http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/ins...fedora+install
I typed linux rescue at the "boot:" prompt and waited...and waited...for 25 minutes and nothing happened, I don't get another prompt.If I type linux rescue and hit enter it begins the installation process???
I should mention this is my first experience with linux, I'm a total newbie.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
