    I did exactly as you told me to do and the active partition won't change. Can you get on MSN please? My sn is kbsuperstar@gmail.com

    You told me to hit q after the other 2 commands. q - quit WITHOUT saving changes. How do i save changes? Do i type w instead? (W - write to disk and exit)

    Ok, I finally got GRUB reinstalled, but now I can't boot up in Windows. What's the deal? Do I need to edit something in GRUB or what?

    yes you have to edit grub.conf.type:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /boot/grub/grub.conf
    than add this :
    Code:
    title windows xp
    	rootnoverify (hd0,1)
    	chainloader +1
    it should look like that(my conf)
    Code:
    title Fedora Core (2.6.11-1.1369_FC4)
    	root (hd0,1)
    	kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
    	initrd /initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.img
    title windows xp
    	rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    	chainloader +1
    title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.15-23-386
            root (hd1,0)
            kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.15-23-386 root=/dev/hdb1 ro 
    quiet splash        
            initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.15-23-386
    title Slackware
            root (hd0,4)
            kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda5 ro vga=773
    (note:dont forget to leave the end line empty)

    well !! i dont recommend you to shrink linux partition.. if you wanna do it then atleast back up all your data... best way is "install windows first and then go for linux"...
    you already installed linux, after installing windows, you might struck in dual booting...
    good luck !!!

    I agree! Windows does not like linux, so it's always a good idea to install windows first! Linux will then recognize windows and give you several installation options. For dual-booting, make sure to install Grub to the MBR.

    Since this is not your situation, I would back-up all my important stuff that I have on Windows to cd/DVD, and then wipe the drive, partition it, reinstall windows, THEN put the linux cd in and she will recognize windows and give you several installation options.

    Cheers!

    So are you dual-booting or virtualizing? I'm looking for a free way (as in beer) to virtualize.

I need windows 'cause Ubuntu can't recognize my network printer and Wine doesn't suit my gaming needs.

    Any suggestions on how I should go about doing this now that I have 5GB of free space partitioned?
    You really need to install windows BEFORE you install ubuntu! Windows does NOT LIKE LINUX! If you install windows first, and then install linux, your linux cd will recognize windows and all your problems will be solved!
