Hi, I want to do a dual boot with xp and ubuntu 7.10, and i want to place the grub loader on the ubuntu partiton, i don't wanna mess up with windows, the problem is that i can't. I already change the loader position that by default is (hda0) and change it to sda6 my linux partition, i already change it to other things but when instalation cames to end it gives me an error "loader position error" or something else. Any help??
