Do you have a disk with only swap on it?
And it would be (much) better to have the operating systems on a SATA disk
I do have a really old 3.5GB IDE drive that I use completely as swap. Probably extra inefficient, but oh well.
I put the OSs on the IDE drive because it's only 40GB and they need less room than all the other crap I have on my other drives. I guess I could change things around.
In other news, I did figure out a solution. It involves many steps.
First, I had to redo the install and instead of leaving (hd0) as the option under Advanced... for the bootloader installation, I had to deliberately pick the primary IDE drive, which showed as /dev/sdd.
Then, the system would reboot and I'd get Error 13 on Windows and Error 22 on Linux from GRUB. I edited GRUB, changing all (hd3,2) to (hd0,2) for the Linux part and changed the Windows part to:
title Microsoft Windows XP Professional
and miraculously, it worked! GRUB loaded perfectly, and it could boot both OSs just right.
Maybe all my sleuthing will help someone else down the line. Let me know if I should provide any more info.
