Problem with GRUB's
 
Hello

I have installed RH8 on my second hard disk. The first one has win2000. I put the RH boot sector at the begining of the second hard disk.

I have an AsusA7N266-VM motherboard, AMD Athlon 2000XP chip and a Nvidia GeForce2 Integrated GPU video chip.

When I would try to boot off the linux hard disk I would just get "GRUB" on a black screen. When I try to boot off the floppy I get a hang on "checking module dependencies".

My grub.con used to look like this
---------------------------------------------------
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd1,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hdc2
# initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hdc1
default=4
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd1,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

root (hd1,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/ hdb=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-14.img
------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------So I changed it to look like this because I didn't care to load all those other things
---------------------------------------------
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#

# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that

root (hd1,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/ hdb=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-14.img
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now the grub boot loader loads and comes up with Linux, so I hit returun and get

---------------------------
Booting Red Hat Linux 2.4.18-14
root(hd1,0)
Files system type is Fat, partition type 0xC
Kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/hdb=ide-scsi
Error 5: File not found
--------------------------------------------------------------

Any ideas

Please help I am very stuck.

Thanks in advance

Seeing as you have deleted a bunch of grub entries, change the default=4 to default=0
