Dual boot with WinXP Pro. I've had Ubuntu 8.04 installed for quite a while now
and when booting up, I do get the option of Operating Systems..Problem is that
it doesn't alway work. Sometimes I have to re-boot several times before Ubuntu
loads.
I get Busy Box v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1 1.3- 5ubuntu) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.
(inistramfs)-

When I go to help, it really isn't any help to me.
I've tried going to esc during boot-up but that comes up during the boot-up
process, so I don't know if it's going to boot correctly or not.
Sorry to be so long winded here.

I used http://apcmag.com/the_definitive_dualbooti..._stepbystep.htm as suggested
in the forum here and it worked perfectly. Thanks.
