thanks for the quick response. basically what i've done is same as yours.
bootpart is a software to make the boot image of linux. same as dd command i

and i do edit the boot.ini but i still got missing hal.dll message.

i've already formatted the 2nd disk for reinstall ubuntu. but before that,
i'd like to hear some advice on this problems in case it appears again.

thanks again. :-)
