Is there any possibility by which I could get all the 3 options ( ie Linux
, Win 98 , Win XP ) in the first screen itself.
I have successfully done this but with the following config:
c: - win2k
d: - win98
To make grub show all 3 entries, I booted off from a win98 bootable disk and
did a ' sys d:'. This will install necessary bootloader and system files to
boot from d:, without depending on the NT bootloader.
I then edited my boot.ini in c: to change the timeout value to 0. then added
another chainloader entry in grub for d:.
You need to check only one thing before you can try something like this. See
if WinXP in d: can boot even after issuing a sys d:. If it is able to boot,
then you can change the timeout value in boot.ini with default to Win98.
