[REDHAT] Re: Grub Booting Win2000? (fwd)

There were questions at the installfest how to dual boot with Win2000.  I 
found this on the Red Hat mailing list.

DKK D  regret it?"  Ford stood up.  "We're safe," he said.  "We are
DK KD  in a small galley cabin," said Ford,  in one of those 
DDDD   spaceships of the Vogon Construction Fleet."  "Ah." said 
       Arthur, "this is obviously some strange usage of the word 
       _safe_ that I wasn't previously aware of."

Unbelievable!  Awesome!  That did it - looking at Win2000 on that machine
right now.  Thanks! (forced me to look at the grub info page, too).
