What happens when you remove the "kudzu" option and why the "noauto" option? If it were mine the line would look more like this: /dev/hda5 /mnt/windows vfat umask=0222 0 0 It looks like you copied one of the fstab entries for one of your "removable" devices which is not really what you want here.

'save settings on exit'

I didn't have this logout box checked, and I found I was losing some things that I shouldn't be losing. For example, I added a new folder to my /mnt directory, and a line in fstab to define it (a vfat partition for Win and Linux to share). The fstab line worked, and I could mount the drive, but anyt...

Yay, both OS boot very nicely! :D Now, I want to set the timeout to infinity, so no OS is automatically booted. If you don't enter a choice, it should just sit there and wait, for weeks if necessary. What is the proper grub syntax for this? I know how to do it in lilo... btw, VoidMain, your link to ...

Resurrected: I installed Slackware on a laptop with an ESS1879 soundchip, and had troubles too. You can build the module and add it to the kernel, you can build the driver into the kernel, or you can install the ALSA drivers, pretty sure they have one that works. I had a hard time configuring the AL...

FC1 and WinXP - dual boot?

I have Fedora Core 1 and Windows XP both installed on my computer at work. Normally, I use a boot floppy to toggle between them - if the floppy is in I get Fedora, if it is out, I get Windows. It works okay, but it is crazy slow. In my most recent install, I asked it to go ahead and put grub in ther...
