Let's see, let's do an experiment shall we?

here is part of one of my replies


(^_^) Yes it would, someone suggested a nice simple how-to to fix the mbr
(^_^)from the rescue console. That would be nice. However I think your
(^_^)mining along the vein of writing to the MBR is probably fruitful. So if
(^_^)I could ask a question of the OP, did you have grub write to the MBR
(^_^)since you restored your XP? The system booting directly into XP would
(^_^)seem to indicate that you didn't.
(^_^) Carl - What do you think of the idea of having the XP bootloader
(^_^)handle booting instead of Grub? There are reasonably simple
(^_^)instructions for editing the required files in XP as well as how to get
(^_^)file(s) he will need to copy over to his XP root partition.

Same amount of area being taken up. Seen way worst ones about. I don't
know, maybe it is JUST me, but I'm usualy reading what someone says
instead of what's sitting on the left margin! :-D
