Grub: Won't boot
I have Windows Xp installed on Hda and Knoppix on hdb everything was going perfect untill I had the brilliant idea to reformat Windows... now... linux wont boot... I get to grub... but when it tries to boot linux, it gets an error and tells me to insert dystem disk... well i have the boot floppy and it works, with it i can boot into linux.. but my question (and keep in mind I've only been using linux for about a month)... how do I transfer the floopy's contents to hdb so i don't have to insert floppy every time i want to boot linux?
What command would i use... or should i just copy the contents and paste them WHERE?
I'm sorry if it's a stupid question... but i need help with this..
thanx in advanced.

Once you are in your Knoppix system, open a terminal, login to root.
grub-install /dev/hdaHow to know if you are a geek.
when you respond to "get a life!" with "what's the URL?"
