    Hi,
    thanks for replying. I knew you were up to something, cause usually i get a reply within 24hrs. After all, I formated both partitions, installed fedora first then backtrack and installed the grub loader manually like the first time u instructed me. So now i can boot to both. thanks to you.

    How ever, im still wondering why that didnt work previosly (as mentioned in the previous post) and got this error and restarts everytime I ettempt to open fedora.

    ************************************************** *****
    root (hd0,0)
    Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 ro root=LABEL=/1 rhgb quiet
    [Linux-bzimage, setup=0x100, size=0x1c9dd4]
    initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7.img
    [Linux-initrd @ 0x1f511000, 0x2bdf7e bytes]
    root (hda0,2)
    Error 23: Error while parsing number

    Press any key to continue....

    When I press a button, it restarts again

    Thats all, thanks again

    Something was wrong in grub.conf file only. GRUB doesn't use Partition numbers in /dev/hda format. root (hda0,2) should be root (hd0,2) only.
