Booting Linux

Since I was in an updating mood I went ahead and updated my Fedora 4 distribution. When I rebooted I went into W2K and copied the linux.bin file from the floppy over. When I rebooted and selected Linux it hung up going into GRUB. So I recreated my boot floppy using the Fedora rescue cd and the following commands:

grub-install /dev/fd0
mkdir /mnt/floppy
mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
dd if=/dev/hdb1 of=/mnt/floppy/linux.bin bs=512 count=1

I copied the linux.bin over to my c drive under w2K and modified the boot.ini file. Now when I boot I get a MS boot menu with a linux option.
