Herve in xp pro,
How can I check which are correct when in Kubuntu, and also I cant
load up my bkup drive to my win xp pro as with my dual boot I get error 17
as I have my backup loaded in a mobile rack(may be via external usb drive????)
thru xp pro I have
drive c 80gb win xp pro
drive d 40gb linux(k)
drive e 80gb bkup xp pro
drive L 40 gb bkup linux(K)
both bkup's are in modbile racks that I can switch on/off when booting up
but now that I have grub with my dual boot whichever o/s I try to boot
to grub says error 17, but when switched off the mobile racks its boot ok 
into either win xp pro/Kubuntu thru the grub,so then cant clone my 80gb xp pro,
but the linux will clone thru paragon drive copy 8 whhen in xp pro?????

anyone know of why when loading the grub that comes with error 17 when I tried to load up 2 extra Hdd from my modile hdd racks(80gb bkup xp pro+ and my old copy ofMe 40gb) in the Grub line said grub loading next line error 17, what does that mean,also when I done a clone copy of the current bkupman 80gb the one I use with dual to toKubuntu, it clonned ok thru dos using Ghost 3 but when I attached as main drive to checkthat it work worked, when booting started to do the grub loading but saidgrub grub grub grub grub etc forever so I presume the clone didnt work, so is there a cloneapp I can use when in K to clone mt xp pro dual boot hdd to a backup of it, cause I can useparagon disk copy 8 to clone the K drives when in xp pro??????? ray
