Well, I'm pretty sure Grub4Dos is supposed to use "find" the same was Grub does. It searches all the partitions for the file specified. I know Grub4Dos gave me the right answer for /NST/menu.lst (telling me it's on my Vista partition). So find works in Grub4Dos, it just doesn't see any files on the ext3 partitions...The thing is, I don't think Grub4Dos is meant to locate Grub with those commands.
I'm not doubting that it works on your system... but just as a question, are you running NeoGrub from the Vista 64 bootloader? Doing some google searches I found anecdotal evidence that Vista x64 users have trouble using other tools that read ext3. So maybe there's some incompatibility between Vista x64 and most existing code that reads ext3? It wouldn't surprise me; I don't think anyone at Microsoft would lose much sleep over it...But you shouldn't relate that back to NeoGrub not being able to read ext3 partitions, because I know for a fact it can, because it does on mine.
I'm sure it would have! And if I'd been smart enough to follow it to the T in the first place, I probably would have gotten it all worked out with less pain... But no, I had to do it my way...Anyhow, I'm glad you finally got it working...despite choosing not to try what I suggested (which would have worked, though, I'm quite sure...)! :lol:
