    GRUB ISSUES


    My RH9 install was messed up by Partition Magic and I really can't put it back on as my CD's are corrupt. Does anyone know how to just set up my GRUB config files without installing a new distro, I am looking at Debian and I think I may switch to it, Gentoo is too confusing to install. I have MandrakeMove download version on CD that I burned a while ago so I still have access to my EXT3 partition, any advice on getting GRUB working.
    I hate doing all of this
    GRUB>rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    GRUB>chainloader +1
    GRUB>boot
    just to boot Windows XPire and MS-DOS 7.10
    Nothing is worse than ten penguins fighting over which is better, vi or emacs.

    Finally I'm back on LF after a long while.

    read the tutorial on the subject in this site.

    that's assuming that you still have access to /boot/grub/grub.conf and that the other files in that folder are still accessable.


    have fun

    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS
