perhaps a bad entry (drive name) in the grub table! Here is mine /boot/grub/grub.conf

When I installed F9, I found the question (sounds like)

"what drive do you want to boot to"

ambivalent .

I have XP Prof on scsi a and F9 on scsi b

I think one boots to scsi a first to get the grub stuff and then to F9 on scsi b.

I had to do some swift grub admin to clear up that mess using the rescue disk = install disk.
