    Grub settings, quick question... really my last question :p

    right now menu.lst (grub) is set:

    title Windows XP
    unhide (hd0,0)
    rootnoverify (hd0,0)
    chainloader +1

    # For booting Linux
    title Knoppix 3.2
    root (hd5,6)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.21-xfs ro
    initrd /boot/initrd.gz

    Winxp boots fine but knoppix doesn't, it says that it can't find the drive, but i know i installed it on my hda5 (knoppix) and hda6(Swap)
    so can you please tell me how it should be?!

    I upgraded to GRUB recently and had this trouble. Don't know why, but here's what I got...

    Code:
    # For booting GNU/Linux from the 3rd logical partition of the first hard disk
    title GNU/Linux
    kernel (hd0,6)/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda7 vga=0x317 hdc=scsi hdd=scsi
    initrd /boot/initrd.gz
    vmlinuz is just a simlink to /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-xfs

    The vga option sets the screen mode. The scsi's are for scsi emulation of the CD drvie.

    Hope this helps.
