Re: Installed with disastrous results

Well I actually did install grub in the mbr.  It was a little tricky
restoring the mbr (my win2k server cd isnt bootable but my win2k pro cd was)

Ben, what you have there is almost exact to what I had (read below).  My
setup is a little weird tho.  I have two hard drives, and I have my linux
install on the D: drive, so its like (it said somewhere) /dev/hdb3/ or some
thing like that.  I usually let the install auto allocate the sizes for me,
if I'm not mistaken I reserved 15gigs, which I may use partition majik to
wipe those partitions, increase it to 20gigs and also make a fat32 partition
of about 5 gigs to share between linux and windows (that's how I should do
it right?)

When I go back, just to make things clear from the start, I want to get some
good info, and redo it fresh and clean and try to do it right.

Ben, I found the code I posted on a forum, this is what I had:

Somewhee I read that the splashimage will yield weird results, so at some
point I commented that line out.
