I don't have access to google or internet on my campus.  Here internet is
expensive, so I only have access to the school's email.

Hi William Scott Lockwood III, you mentioned that i need a backup of my
boot sector, how can I back up my boot sector.  Also is it possible to
have grub control the boot loader instead of the windows default.  I was
thinking I just have to make grub the default loader by telling it where
the Windows partition would be installed.  Also if this is possible can I
get the commands to do it, because I don't have access to internet and
don't have a chance to just search google.
