Description of problem:
I have windows 98 on a 10GB HDD. bought an 80GB HDD partitioned it for linux
20GB for / partition 256MB for swap and 200MB for /boot.
the 80GB is now the master drive and linux boots fine using GRUB...But When i
try to boot Win98 with GRUB the screen goes blank and shows:
it stops there...i tried modifying the boot commands to:
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
the windows splash screen shows up, and you can hear HDD activity. but the
screen goes blank and it stops doing anything why?
i can get windows to boot by going into the bios and changing the boot order to
boot from my 10GB HDD. but i would like to avoid doing that everytime i want to
change the OS i'm working in

Unable to reproduce. This looks like it's almost certainly Windows not liking
having its drive moved around.
