I changed the subject and am top-posting. I don't have my notes for
doing that with me today, but I'm sure someone can tell you how fixing
grub after installing windows. is done.

Likely there is a howto page on the wiki since it has to be done so often.

Many years ago it was possible to create a boot (floppy) disk for those
times when loading windowz after Linux your boot partition was lost. Is
it possible to do this still only create a boot CD disk with your image
on so you can re- load grub?


The normal SuSE install DVD supports this via the rescue menu selection.

I don't recall if the LiveCDs do or not.

Hi Greg,
Thanks for the reply,
Do you know how to do this using the rescue menu? I am fearful that as I
install windows on a partition on my machine it will overwrite the boot sector
and I will not be able to boot into Linux again. Hence I'm looking for the
command(?) mechanism to be able to re-establish the boot sector.
