save and reboot when rebooting press ESC for menu
hope this works it did for us
just thought of something,( I asked this yesterday)does it make any difference if ubuntu is installed when set to master or slave, our drive was set to install ubuntu in slave and would only boot up on its own when connected as a slave . XP booted up as master or slave.?
Well Done !
thats the correct code for dual boot setup. didn't you edit device.map file too?

now if you install Linux while disk plugged in as Primary Master, installer will configure GRUB according to that only. if you plug disk in other channel, device names will be changed and GRUB will refuse to work.

I talked to a friend earlier. He said it really doesn't matter if you let GRUB install stuff on the MBR. He did it and now it boots into Windows, and if he wants linux, he hits F12. No GRUB file editing necessary. Would it work?
i can't repeat same thing again n again. if your friend said that it worked for him. go ahead. Hit F12, change boot order and boot up any OS.
