    I am attempting to dual boot my Linux and Windows but when I get to the grub OS selection screen I get:

    Linux nonfb

    I am not sure how to go about booting both systems. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx.

    Dual boot means you can boot "either or," not "both at the same time." Therefore...
    linux nonfb
    and failsafe
    all boot linux

    windows boots windows.

    I'm not sure if grub will boot any floppy other than a linux boot floppy, but you can try and find out. If your interest is in running Windows and Linux at the same time, take a look at VMWare. It's expensive, but I use it to run Windows through Linux on occasion.
    Hope this helps.

    P.S. I'm not trying to make you look stupid. I'm sure you already knew what dual boot meant, it's just the way I read your post, that's all. No offense I hope.
