    Default GRUB hangs up in dualboot

    Hello :


    I want to boot a Linux RH9 distribution ( that places in a secondary
    disk) using WinXP's boot manager ( that places in a primary disk )


    This is my configuration (in spanish):

    +++++++++++++++

    Disco /dev/hda: 6505 MB, 6505712640 bytes
    255 cabezas, 63 sectores/pista, 790 cilindros
    Unidades = cilindros de 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

    Disposit. Inicio Principio Fin Bloques Id Sistema
    /dev/hda1 * 1 790 6345643+ b Win95 FAT32

    Disco /dev/hdd: 4324 MB, 4324368384 bytes
    9 cabezas, 63 sectores/pista, 14896 cilindros
    Unidades = cilindros de 567 * 512 = 290304 bytes

    Disposit. Inicio Principio Fin Bloques Id Sistema
    /dev/hdd1 * 1 271 76797 83 Linux
    /dev/hdd2 966 14896 3949438+ 83 Linux
    /dev/hdd3 272 965 196749 82 Linux swap

    +++++++++++++++


    In /dev/hdd1 is mounted /boot
    In /dev/hdd1 is mounted /




    So, in Linux , I do :
    > grub-install /dev/hdd1
    (fd0) /dev/fd0
    (hd0) /dev/hda
    (hd1) /dev/hdd
    > dd if=/dev/hdd1 of=/mnt/win/linux.bin bs=512 count=1

    Before, in WinXP , I change C:\boot.ini file in the right way




    My /etc/grub.conf:

    default=0
    timeout=10
    splashimage=(hd1,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
    title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8)
    root (hd1,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=/dev/hdd2
    initrd /initrd-2.4.20-8.img





    QUESTION : in booting , if in WinXP's boot manager I choice "Linux" ,
    appears a message: "GRUB" and the boot hangs up

    what is the problem?


    Thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!
