Re: Grub not found

Hi;

I am trying to help a friend install Linux for the first time as a dual
boot using two hard drives.  For FC5 I keep getting "ERROR: no operating
system found." on the first re-boot.

Did you set the Active (Bootable) bit on that partition?
This may be coming from the BIOS if not.

Could we please see the output of

# fdisk -l

?

WindowsXP pro is on hda; hdc contains FC5.

BIOS is set to boot hdc first.  Grub is installed in /boot/grub/.
grub.conf appears to be written correctly with Linux as the default.

Erm, it needs to be *installed* on the MBR or the BR of one of
the partitions.

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
