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.

I think it's /boot/grub/menu.lst in Ubuntu.

Ok, so here's my menu.lst file - see anything that jumps out?

root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-10-generic root=/dev/hda2 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-10-generic
quiet

initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-10-generic
quiet
savedefault
boot

title Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.17-10-generic (recovery mode)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.17-10-generic root=/dev/hda2 ro single
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.17-10-generic
boot

FYI: I had to unhide the Xp partition. Boots in to both OS's fine now.
