Not enough chilli, garlic and oranges in your diet Captain!?!? Careful, you'll end up with scurvy!

Hope you're feeling better soon

Geez! I hope not too! Sounds nasty... We used to drink Indian Tonic Water to combat malaria as some brands contain quinine which is similar to chloriquine.
"Chloroquine is gaining ground as a possible treatment for the symptoms associated with Chikungunya, and as an anti-inflammatory agent to combat the arthritis associated with Chikungunya virus"

Take care

If you use the advanced install option you can ensure that the boot files are loaded onto the actual Linux partition, and leave the boot partition alone completely.
That's the best course of action - except for when one isn't paying attention during installation and forgets to do it

It is then a fairly simple task to use easyBCD to set-up the loading from within the Windows loader.
Yep, even if Grub overrides the MBR, EasyBCD can re-write the MBR and then you can add the Grub loader to the MBR.

But Suses's Loader does look kind of nice

Quote:
Ubuntu 9.10 also has the WUBI option which sets up the Linux as a type of bootable VHD and thus also avoids Grub
Not a big fan of the WUBI install method. I personally prefer the native ext4 file system for speed vs a NTFS VHD. That's just my personal preference though. Plus wiping a sour distro install is as easy as wiping a partition. Not to mention satisfying

(however a little sprinkling of MBR repair can sometimes be a minor issue )

Hope you feel better soon Capt. Orpheous I have cans of Indian Tonic Water here and drink it to combat cramp, it has to the Indian Tonic Water as that has the quinine included, I use the Tesco brand variety, it's cheaper than paying for Schweppes.

Hi Joan,
I had no idea that indian tonic water was also good for cramps, that's handy to know, thank you!
I only just noticed that you're in South Wales. I was born in Bridgend, although I was only there for a few months...

[Worthless trivia Mode on]

Tonic water was actually invented in India as a way of providing quinine to the British to combat malaria, in an attempt to mask the bitter taste of the Tonic Gin was added. The often bitter taste of of a British Gin and Tonic is actually due to a reaction between the tonic and the slice of lemon. The lemon was only added during the second world war when the correct fruit - a wedge of Lime - was unavailable. Lime in a gin and tonic actually removes most of the bitter taste, but you can still leave the gin in
