Hi,

actually I would recommend to tell GRUB to not manipulate
the partition table at all. Why should it hide FAT from
Linux or XP? Why should it hide XP and Linux from DOS?
All three operating systems are smart enough to know the
drive letter from which they are booting, although I am
not 100% sure about XP ;-). So while the grub manual on

www.gnu.org/software/grub/manual/grub.html#DOS_002fWindows

does mention things like hide, unhide and makeactive, I do
not think you need ANY of them for FreeDOS or Linux... You
should probably mark your NTFS partition as active to make
XP happy, but for the other systems, you can probably keep
the partition table untouched :-). If your heavy hide stuff
is in some automatically created menu.lst then you should
probably contact the people who wrote the software which
made your menu.lst and tell them that they overdid it :-).
