Hi, I just tried to boot into an ubuntu partition that I've installed. I have three hard drives, a 750 GB (storage), a 250 GB (Vista Ultimate), and an 160 GB (Linux OS and swap partition). I installed linux perfectly on that particular HDD, but hen I tried to boot up, the grub loader gives me either error 17 or 21. I tried supergrubdisk, but it still won't load. I have unplugged the OS and the storage dives, but that also doesn't work. What should I do?

list for us the hard drives, the order they show up in the bios, and the partitions on those drives (for a start)

This would probably be easier (and more accurate) by booting your LiveCD, go into a terminal session and typing in sudo /sbin/fdisk -l

I'll add, that since you've been fiddling with your HDs, I would highly recommend putting them back in the order they were before for fear you'll have issues with booting windows also.

Do your drives support the Cable Select setting??

Anything more than 512-1024 MB on a typical user machine is a waste of space for swap area.

A server could possibly stand to use more... but not necessarily.
