    Oh, I see - that's the same problem currently plaguing Fedora Core 2. It seems that entering the BIOS setup and setting the hard drive's access mode to "LBA" instead of "Auto" should solve the problem. Have you tried doing that, e2k?

    This worked! Thank you very much, you saved my day!
    Actually I just found the same advice in the url I and loft306 posted, but didn't find the place where you could change the harddrive access mode.. But when you suggested it, I thought I could give it a second shot, and after a struggle to find it i succeeded Thank you!

    On a purly intelectual level, i was wondering why this fixes the problem, i don't understand alot of things that go on in the bios, but i am curios as to what that change does, and why it would correct the chainloading problem
