reconfiguring grub to see windows partition etc....
I am using a machine at work that has an AMD Duron 1200 MHz i386 chip in it
and two hard disks. The master is a 40GB drive and the secondary one is a
Debian Etch r0 i386 lives on the 40GB drive.
I used to have Fedora Core 6 on the 20 GB drive but now I wiped it off using
the debian installer partitioning software.....
After a lot of farting around I managed to install Windows 98 on the smaller
I need it to run certain software I can't easily run in Linux.
I had to disconnect the master 40GB drive to get windows to think the slave
drive was the primary drive.... It then installed.
I have been booting the Debian on the master disk with a boot floppy with
grub on it. This works fine.
But it doesn't see the Windows and so I can't boot it now after I have
reconnected the master hard drive....
I can only boot Debian.
How do I reconfigure the grub to see the windows 98 partition and allow me
the option of booting it without having to reinstall the entire Debian OS on
the big disk?
I think I could also do better to drop using the floppy and just have the
machine boot with grub from the hard disk itself and then give me the option
of firing up either Debian or Windows 98...
Your suggestions on achieving this would be appreciated.
I have discovered that Windows can be tough to install relative to most
