Edubuntu Installation / Dual Boot Problem

good news I've finally got Feisty working! But Gavin, your workaround with the
server install cd didn't work for me. I only had the edgy server install cd
with me, as I only downloaded the desktop cd for feisty, but i guess it
shouldn't be any different if I only wanted to reinstall Grub.
Reinstalling Grub worked but when I rebooted the machine, Grub didn't appear
so Windows XP started automatically. Then I decided to boot again from the
server install Edgy cd and installed Edgy from scratch. it was absolutely no
problem with the text-based installer configuring the / partition as
bootable. 30 minutes or so later I finally had a working Edgy, and now Grub
appears when the machine is booted. :D
On another note, I've read somewhere that I can configure grub so that Windows
XP is listed first and then Edubuntu. Any idea where I can edit that?
Otherwise people will be confused when they can't access their windows, so I
guess if Windows was at the top position it will make it easier for the
I then changed all sources in the sources.list to Feisty and made an
dist-upgrade. This took quite long (longer than installing Edgy), and voila
now I have a working Feisty with a dualbooted Windows XP. I'm soooo glad I
got it working now.
I've noticed that the old edgy Kernel is still listed in the grub boot menu,
can I get rid of that somehow or is it necessary to have it?!
All the best, and thanks for reading!
