    Boot Manager


    I just installed Suse 9.x and was not able to get the GRUB boot manager to manage my Linux, 98 and XP partition. XP was just plain left out in the cold. I have tried a variety of recommended actions but to no avail. Is there another BM that I can try? I have read something about Lilo? I also have a copy of partition magic 6.0 that I think I could use. Any suggestions?

    Yes I used it when I was dual booting RH9 and FreeBSD 4.8. It worked very well for me. It recognized both OS's and created choices for them.

    What I need to be able to do...I have 2 hard drives. The second is a 120GB 5400 rpm hard drive that I have 3 partitions on, FAT32, NTSF and Linux. the first hard drive is an 80 GB 7200 rmp hard drive. I have the following partitions on this one:

    Win 98
    Win XP
    Linux
    Chinese XP
    Win 98 Dazzle
    Data

    I need a boot manager that will allow me to boot to all of these operating systems...I have read the documention on GAG and find it a little vague in some areas...will it do what I want to do?

    Can you post your partition information as well as your grub.conf? It is possible (and easy) to get this working with grub.
