    rename it to Kxxjiffyboot. xx is 100-37. so, in my machine, it will be K63jiffyboot.
    Code:
    sudo mv S37jiffyboot K63jiffyboot
    edit device.map file again and reboot.
    Just to make sure I understand completely. You want me to rename the file to to K63jiffyboot. In the code you show moving the file somewhere. Do I need to rename AND move or which one?

    By the way, I will be at the computer tonight when I get home from work.

    if you dont specify any new location, mv command works as rename only.
    just rename that file with mv command.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Ok, sorry for the delay. Had to go back to work, vacation over. Had some remodeling projects to get started at the house.

    Followed your instructions DC. Renamed file to K63jiffyboot. Edited device.map, reboot....device.map is now saving to:
    Code:
    (hd1) /dev/hdb
    Thought I was home free....rebooted again...tried the Windows XP option in grub menu...got following error:
    Code:
    Error 21: The selected hard disk does not exist
    Back to square one I guess. Any more ideas? Awaiting response. Thank You

    ::Edit::

    it worked pretty well in my test machine. i dont know why its not working now. we have disable jiffyboot already.
    try this: edit kernel line /boot/grub/menu.lst file too.
    Code:
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.14-gratis root=/dev/hda1 vga=0x311 splash=silent
