    Grub

    I'm doing the http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/Win_Partition method. I don't know how to setup my menu.lst file. I've tried numerous ways.

    title Knoppix 3.8.1 from NTFS sda1 ISO scan ramdisk=32MB
    kernel (hd,0)/boot/knoppix.381/linux ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init lang=us apm=power-off vga=791 nomce quiet bootfrom=/dev/hd0/boot/knoppix.381/*.iso config=scan home=scan ramdisk=32768 noprompt
    initrd (hd,0)/boot/knoppix.381/minirt_ntfs.gz
    boot

    It's those "(hd,0)" thingy. I've tried sda,0 and sda1,0 and sda,1

    Here's background.

    I have 2 physical hard drive.
    1- 36 gig sata
    2- 200gb sata

    Ignore my 36gig, going take out that soon. #2 is partioned into 4.

    1-windows xp
    2-files/dl
    3-files for download
    4-files for downloading

    Anyways. My C:\=one of the 36gig

    My Windows XP is I:\

    What should I put in my menu.lst? Plz help

    The 'root' you entered looks incorrect. Change
    Code:
    (hd,0)
    to
    Code:
    (hd0,0)

    Do you get the grub prompt (grub is loaded properly from the ntlfr/boot.ini) ? if not you should work on your boot.ini file.
    If yes, use the autocompletion of the interactive mode to figure out what is the syntax to use. Try to type something like:
    "root (hd" + "the tab key" or
    "root (sd" + "the tab key"
    and grub will show you a list of options. You can enter all the commands of the menu.lst manually to boot...
    Good luck, Gilles
