    windows98 doesn't boot (multiboot)


    Hellow people

    when i try to boot windows 98 in grub, it just hangs with this at my dsiplay
    Code:
    Booting 'other'
    
    rootnoverify (hd1,0)
    chainloader +1
    I am using GRUB as bootloader

    when i disconnect my other harddisk (the one with linux) windows 98 just boots fine.. so the problem is the bootloader? i think,,,

    I hope you guys can help me with this problem

    Could you post the results of
    Code:
    fdisk -l
    so we can make sure you're specifying the right drive? Also Win98 especially doesn't like not being on the first partition of the first drive (your grub.conf entry shows that you're booting it from the first partition on the second drive), so you may have to enter a map parameter in your grub.conf like
    Code:
    map (hd0,0) (hd1,0)
    	map (hd1,0) (hd0,0)

    You running Fedora? You may have to fully qualify the command (Fedora doesn't put sbin in your path by default). Try
    Code:
    /sbin/fdisk -l

    Will it go if you add "boot" to the script?
    Code:
    Booting 'other'
    
    rootnoverify (hd1,0)
    chainloader +1
    boot
    /IMHO
    //got nothin'
    ///this use to look better

    Your drives start at /dev/hdc? That's a bit odd...could you post the contents of /boot/grub/device.map? Not sure if that's the right path for Fedora, you may have to search for it with
    Code:
    find / -name device.map -print

    Code:
    # this device map was generated by anaconda
    (fd0)     /dev/fd0
    (hd0)     /dev/hdc
    (hd1)     /dev/hdd

    OK, you're pointing it to the right partition. Try modifying its entry with the map stuff I posted earlier, and post the full contents of your /etc/grub.conf file please. Can you still see the contents of that drive from within Fedora?
