GRUB Dual Boot

For a dual boot with MS/Windows/NT on the first partition and Linux on the second (like Mint), you may need to change the default locations of Linux. Look at /boot/grub/menu.lst to see if the following two lines have been changed:

# kopt=root=/dev/hda1 ro
# groot=(hd0,0)
to
# kopt=root=/dev/hda2 ro
# groot=(hd0,1)
Also, add to the end of the file:
title           Windows NT
rootnoverify    (hd0,0)
makeactive
chainloader     +1

Once it looks okay, run update-grub then reboot!
