    i know this, sorry i didnt explain a bit more clearly
    well to make sure that it doesnt try to boot from HDD, i just set CD-ROM as primary and disable the rest. when i want to boot back to XP i set HDd as primary boot and disable the rest. maybe this is the problem? i didnt know disabling a device in the boot order would prevent linux from recognizing it.

    Yes you right but he tried the kernel huge26.s from the slack dvd without any success ,the huge26.s made with from 2.6.x with the largest hardware support.

    Sure there is a big difference between the windows and the linux kernel, basically the linux kernel affected by any change on the bios setting (that what i read from an interview with a linux kernel developer ).

    But tell me know it's working

    i get absolutely NOTHING with those commands; so its not reading the HDD (recognizing it) because there is NO ERROR, just goes to next line in console.....so it returns nothing....

    im getting 4 sata hard drives soon for RAID0, 2 for Win and 2 for linux, so i hope that will be recognized
