just a little curious how this is all working out... my upstairs neighbor
and i have been messing around with suse 9.1 on his machine. we installed
linux first, and then windows xp - and of course grub was removed from the
MBR. after re-installing grub we were able to boot to either windows or
linux from the boot menu. however, after a second install of winXP and grub
winXP refuses to boot from the grub boot menu... after selecting the windows
option a back screen comes up saying that the partition is not a bootable
partition... when in fact it used to be...

i am wondering if this is somehow related to the problems that peter is
having, and if there is some kind of MBR voodo that needs to be done in
order to fix both windows and grub -- so that they can co-exist...
