Hi,

I just installed ubuntu 11.04 on my PC from CD. I selected the option for it to run as dual boot with my windows xp (SP1 - don't laugh).

I changed the boot priority order in BIOS to hard drive. The problem is the boot menu where i select the OS doesn't appear and I go directly into winXP. I have rebooted ubuntu from the disc and checked that all the ubuntu files are there and the drives are partitioned as set. So where is the boot menu?

I notice the grub.cfg file refers to windows xp - do need to change something here?

Thanks, as always, in advance
