Hi there, 
Variosu people have recomened linux to me over the past year or so and I 
finally decided to take the plunge.  I'm a complete programming/linux/unix 
newbie who's decided to break out of the Micro$oft bubble.  Having said that, 
I still want to have Windows on my PC since I have various things that only 
run under windows (various scientific thingys, I'm a chemistry student here 
in Durham).  Now my problem, I've installed SuSE personal edition 9.1 on my 
2nd hard drive, but now I can't boot Windows XP from my first hard drive, I 
just get a message saying "missing operating system".  I've tried 
reinstallign XP from CD but with no luck, so at the moment I can only get 
SuSE to run.  Does anyone have any idiot-proof suggestions of how to get 
windows working again? 
Cheers in advance folks, 
Chris Hanning 
PS Hopefully I'll be at your next meeting in November.
