grub doesn't worj on my primary drive...
I installed Etch on my old Gateway 2000 PC. The slave drive is 13GB in size
and Etch is parked on it.
The primary drive is a smaller 1GB drive with Windows 98 on it.
At the end of the installation I selected the option to put GRUB on the
master disk as I remember it.
It didn't work properly because on booting I get an error from GRUB
Grub fails (or something like that)
I can't fire up Windows or Debian.
The BIOS sees both drives OK.
Smart boot manager can boot up Windows but it can't boot the Linux up.
If I use a rescue floppy etc what do I do with it?
I have never been able to do anything useful with rescue mode.
How would I use it to put GRUB on the slave disk (if that is a good idea) or
make a boot floppy with GRUB on it that overrides looking on the primary
disk and boots Debian for me?
Web pages on rescue mode use would be useful.
