Re: The definitive dual-booting guide

OK I got the installation to start but it failed at creating the Partition saying that the max amount of partitions are already in use. (Swap, Boot & Applications). Would not go any further and now I'm getting No operating system after reboot.
How do I get back my Grub?

I even tried moving my Partitions around to make the FAT32 partition fi...

Re: Howto: Fix grub issues after install

I meant the commands to use at the prompt / in terminal window like in dos.
I gound the GNU GRUB Manual 0.97. It's very useful. I'll print it.
Anyone wanting it can find it here:

Thanks.

Like any new convert I'm loving it and have been installing tons of stuff and experimenting with my new toy. Recently I updated my system after a notification and apparently went up to Kernel 2.6.27.11 f...
