    Problem in booting after resizing partition


    I have RedHat Linux and Win XP on my machine and was using GRUB to boot either of them. It was working fine. I wanted to move some extra space from Linux partition to windows. So I used Partition Magic to free some space on Linux partition and merged it with Windows partition.

    Now when I boot, I am taken to the GRUB command prompt. I tried to boot using Linux Intallation CD and also Win XP installation CD, but I always get to that grub command prompt. I don't know what to do from there. Please help me.

    Thanks.

    Make sure your bios says to boot from cd first before harddrive.
