I have this old Gateway 2000 I've been messing around with. I put in a new 160 GB HDD b/c the old one sounded like a coffee percolator and was all of 8 gigs. I installed DSL and decided I didn't like that distro so I went with Kubuntu instead. I ran the installer from the text-basted install disk, but whenever I try to boot the comp, it says "Grub Loading.... Error 18." From what I understand, this is because the disk is bigger than the BIOS limit, but I have no idea how to resolve the issue.

Sorry, I just realized I've already made a thread here.
