Little problem with grub
11/01/2019 15:30
I just downloaded and install FC4. Everything work very well so far. THe only problem I have is when I boot. I have the choice of linux and Xp.

I have only 3 seconds to chose wich one I want, how to make it a little longer?Also, XP wont boot, the line is not correct. The line is hd0,4 but the correct line should be hd0,1I change it, but it wont save. I need to change it every time. How to change it for once? Thank you Yvon

HTH Vic.
