Description of problem:
I have a Dell Dimension 8300 which has a FAT partition for Dell
Utility which has a diagnostics program. I installed Fedora Core 1.
If I press the appropriate function key to get into the Dell Utility
Partition upon turning on the computer, it goes into GRUB and I can
only choose between the OS's that are part of Grub and if I try to go
into Windows XP Pro, for example it gives an error message upon
trying to boot since the computer was expecting to go right into the
Dell Utility Partition.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Turn on Dell computer
2. Press F12 to get into setup screen
3. Select option to boot into utility partition
