    Is there a special reason for that or you think of a standard dual boot? Any way, here is what you need to put in your /boot/grub/menu.lst in case of standard dual boot:

    title Windows 95/98/NT/2000
    root (hd0,0)
    makeactive
    chainloader +1

    grub boot loader read the boot file from a windows partition

    Actually, I had knoppix loaded to the HD, which is partitioned to Knoppix and windows. But, now I want to remove the Knoppix partition.
    Do you know if I can just move the grub.conf to the windows partition and delete the knoppix partition. Would grub still be able to load/ boot windows? Thanks.
