Linux wont load after Installed Linux

#1
okay

so i FINALLY! got vista again...

i have to HDD one with a dead XP Pro on it

and i just recently (last night) partitioned my linux HDD into, i have a 68GB HD for linux, and a 76GB HD for windows vista

i had to first install XP pro (free too! YAY COMPUTER SCIENCE!!!) becuase i was receiving errors from the partition, XP installed perfectly, and then so did Vista.

after vista was installed. i downloaded easyBCD and i added an entry for for my linux HD i selected the right partition... but maybe not all the right setting:

Oh.. I'm sure you did that already, but just to be sure: you have to specify the letter of the XP drive if you're not already booted into XP when you did that....

like so: `chkdsk X: /f` or else it'll scan your system drive.
