You can remap the BIOS drive designations from Grub, so that XP and W2K think they are booting from the drive they expect. (See the map option.) It also works when you are chainloading to things loke a bootable USB drive that is set so that the system boots from it. (Boot from USB BIOS option.)On Mon, 11 Aug 2008 08:36:43 -0700 "Daniel B.

Could be (not sure) that the only way to use grub for everything is if the main grub partition with all the chainloader specs is on the same disk with XP. The fact that vista will boot leads me to suspect this may be the case, vista's boot code may not be as braindamaged as XP and W2k. The last time I had linux and XP on the same system, they were both on the same disk with grub and I had no problems (other than the problem that I couldn't install XP at all if there was an ext3 partition anywhere on any sata disk, but I solved that by wiping all the disks clean and installing XP first :-).
