I have installed Fedora 4 on a new harddisk and have XP on my old. Everything seemed fine during the installation and I hoped for a dual boot system. But it boots into windows only. I read about this problem and printed out the information on how to copy the boot info and using windows to boot into Linux. But when, after booting and using rescue mode, I try to mount the floppy to copy the boot partition to the floppy I get: /dev/fd0 is write protected, mounted as read only. And can´t copy the files.
I tried grub-install /dev/fd0 and grub-install /dev/hda and gets the answer "/dev/hdb1 does not have a corresponding BIOS drive" hdb1 is where the boot directory is.
So now I am at loss...Help!
How can I:
a) boot to linux in a normal way (non rescue mode) by using CD or similar
b) make the floppy writable
As far as I can see everything seems fine with the files and directories on the Linux disk. I had to manually add floppy under mnt. It is the same floppy and the same drive as when I use it under XP.
Thanks in advance!
