Hokay. I’m a new Linux user altogether as well as openSUSE 11.0/ KDE 4.0 (4.1?). I was a previous XP user and still need XP critically. However, I can’t seem to boot XP at all. It wasn’t in grub until I modified menu.lst, and now the option just doesn’t work (gave me an Error 18 once too). My computer automatically boots to grub and doesn’t give me a shot at BIOS. I’ve tried a bunch of stuff with my menu.lst. My menu.lst looks like this:
##YaST - activate

I can’t seem to upload a picture of my partitions at the moment, but I have sda, sda1 thru sda7.
sda is 93.1 GB, sda1 is 92.9, sda4 is 251 MB. (sda = sda1+sda4)
sda4 is unknown type, sda5-7 all have Linux somewhere in the type name (5-7 are 2, 20, and 70.9 GB respectively).
I hope this doesn’t mean I formatted my XP. I’m new to Linux (love it), but I have files/programs on my XP that I really really need. If anyone knows anything about this, I’d really appreciate it.
Also, just for grins, my grub.conf is:
setup --stage2=/boot/grub/stage2 (hd0,5) (hd0,5)
And my device.map is:
