Re: Boot Windows XP from high block number?



Hi David, 

I'm trying to triple boot Fedora 10, XP-64 bit, and xp-32 bit.
I installed XP-32 bit, XP-64 bit (at this point, I could see both the Os in boot menu). Then I installed Fedora 10. However, after this, I could only see Fedora-10. Editing Grub.conf (from many suggestions) didn't help. 
Keep getting device read error messages. Then I bumped to ur post. Now, I'm a newbie in "parted". I was hoping if you could provide me some pointers, if it is useful at all for me:

running parted for my machine:

[root localhost [1] vcamatya]# /sbin/parted
