    Hello, I just built a Windows box and added an addiitonal harddrive to install Fedora 8 Core. I am doing this cause I purchased an administration book for Fedora and want to practice but I have run into an issue that I knew would come up. I installed the Fedora core on drive d: and of course rebooting just boots into XP.

    Is there a way to install some sort of boot manager in order to choose XP or Linux? I did a similar install some months ago on one drive and of course Grub automatically installed and I could choose which OS on boot but I'm a bit stumped.

    Download Super Grub Disk and install that one as bootloader... it should recognize both OSes...

    Thank you. I did download the software and booted up my computer but it would not start the Linux drive, XP started up perfectly but the linux drive just said invalid drive. I'll do some research on installing multple OS's on seperate drives, I must have done something incorrect along the way.
