Dual boot Ubuntu/Xp Pro problem

Recommended Posts

I used partition magic 8.0 to create the partition for Ubuntu 6.10 and the swap partition. Booting in to Linux works fine, but when I attempt to boot in to Xp using GRUB, I get an "autocheck" error and it fails to load Xp. I can't seem to find the grub.conf (it's not in /boot/grub or /etc). Any ideas?

 

Yep, I'm a noob.
