I have never tried this: it seems good. What came to my head was, making
the partition with the win2k OS as the primary one in the bios, and then
boot with any Linux CD/DVD and then install grub with grub-install (hd0)
and unhash those lines in menu.lst that are already there in
Ubuntu /boot/grub/menu.lst

But, this was an option that worked till 6.1 and in other distros too.
In 7.04 till now I could not make grub-install work. It is a question I

place in Ubuntu 7.04? Is it a problem for us who upgraded from 6.1 by

And does anyone have any good link to that 'label' thing in grub and
