Replacing GRUB bootloader with WIN NT bootloader
I know there have been many questions about removing/replacing GRUB over the years, but I have my own, so pls. bear with me.
I have two HDD's, with WIN XP SP3 on HD1 and Fedora Linux on HD2. I have GRUB boootloader, which, as best I can grasp, resides on the WIN XP disk drive (HD1).
I don't like the idea of a Linux loader on a WIN drive (it just doesn't seem right to me), and would like to replace it with the WIN NT Boot Loader. I understand that that this can be done with the WIN Recovery Console, FIXMBR command, or similar. But then I ask, how can one modify the WIN bootloader Configuration file (presumably boot.ini) to add the existing Linux installation? I haven't seen any reference anywhere as to how to add additional (non-WIN) OS's to the WIN NT Boot Loader.
So, that is my question.
If any of of the earlier steps (removal of GRUB) I outlined are erroneous or incomplete, I'd be grateful for clarification of those.
I do think that playing with bootloaders is a bit of a precarious task and if you screw it up, one can end up with an unbootable machine, the last thing anyone wants, which is perhaps why there have been so many discussions on this matter on the Forums over the years.
