install igos linux through xp sp2 – edit grub

Published by:

i thought i could install slackware on the laptop but something wrong with the cd so i tried igos linux and it worked. i read in the booting log and it written the linux based on red hat nash version 5.0.32.
well dont really care about that, i continue installing the os. then i want to configure the grub, since the os using grub for boot manager (bm).
so quite easy to edit them coz it really looks like debian linux. i just edit the grub then automatically install into the boot loader. different with lilo, that needs to re-start to load in to the boot loader.
so what i want is to change the name of XP os that written Other and use the default boot to it. instead of igos as default.
here what i do :
i try to find the grub configuration in /boot/grub and yes there is.
i copy the menu.lst file into menu.lst.old

#cp menu.lst menu.lst.old #just in case something happen i still have the original file

then i m using nano to edit it.

#nano /etc/grub/menu.lst

i change the title i want and the default to numer = 1 or 2 depends on how many your os are.

and i save it by pressing ^O and the ^X to exit.

then init 6 to restart the linux. and there the boot loader change.

Published by:

well for the couple week i try ubuntu in my compie, nice installation, very easy like winni. when its complete i try to find out how this ubuntu can be shared into the network. one article in ubuntu-forum said that i should activate samba. so i did. not very hard thou. type this to edit samba configuration:

sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf

then search (‘Strg+W’ in nano) for this line:security “user” and change it into security “share”

then add the following line to the [global] section

client NTLMv2 auth = yes

then restart your samba

sudo /etc/init.d/smb.conf restart

try it, now your ubuntu appears in windows network. ow yeas dont forget. u must enter to administration setting – network and set the group network thru GUI into your desire network.
it works for me
