Thanks for the tip. I'm having a bit of a problem though; the CD that I 
thought was bootable-to linux was NOT bootable to linux.  I don't have a 
floppy drive and cant get back into linux to install grub.

I tried getting in through knoppix, but it said it was unable to write to 
the drive to install grub.  Any suggestions?  I'd like to be able to get 
back in to linux.
