Re: Windows not starting at Boot

Hi,
I'm a very fresh user of Fedora that I've installed on a new HD some
days ago.
Now I'm very in troubles because since the first time Windows doesn't
appears at the boot and I think the matter is on /dev/hdb 1st partition
"HPFS/NTFS" instead of Linux.
This is the grub.conf file plus fdisk of both 1st HD (Win) and 2nd HD
(Fc3).
Could you confirm and give me any suggestion ? Thanks

You have a 5 second timeout in /boot/grub/grub.conf, so your choice screen will only be displayed for five seconds. If you don't hit a keyboard key within that period, the system will automatically boot linux.

To change that timeout to, say, 10 seconds, edit /boot/grub/grub.conf
and change the "timeout=5" to "timeout=10".
