Subject: [gentoo-dev] question about grub
Date: Fri, 15 Mar 2002 12:01:08
1 Hello,
3 I was reading your excellent installation documentation online, and I
4 ran into a question. Near the end you're breaking down the commands for
5 grub, but you leave some information out that I would like to know:
7 # Below needed only for people who dual-boot
8 title=Windows NT Workstation
9 root (hd0,5)
10 chainloader +1
12 I'm unclear as to what the (hd0,5) are pointing to, is to say "boot of
13 off the FAT partition located at partition 5"? Normally MS likes to
14 reside on the primary partition of the drive, so I just want clarification
15 on this. For instance, if I have a dual boot, MS on the primary partition
16 and Gentoo's root at (sd0,3), then I would put root (sd0,1) under my
17 Windows boot section, correct? And also, what does the chainloader +1
18 command do? Thank you fo your time, I'm an old fan of lilo, but I have
19 been cosidering migrating to a newer bootloader :)
