         Planned Release: 



 I have a AMD athalon xp2000 with 2HD, 2DVD booting 2 Windows, 5 Linux, 1
FreeBSD works fine. Added a pci ide/raid card added 3rd HD  works fine. Until
I tried a live Cd/DVD Grub boots before CD. went to Bios changed boot order no
luck still grub loads before CD can.Back to Bios took Hard drives out of boot
sequence stil grub boots. Press F4 ask which drive to boot from select DVD
drive still Grub boots. My only work around is to remove pci ide/raid card,
Cd boots first every time.

 Is there any way I can add a selection to my menu list to be able to choose
to boot from CD/DVD a command that will boot live CD/DVD and distro CD/DVD
for up grade or fresh install?
My start up sequince is Hd's and DVD's reconized raid card reconized asked to
set up raid(never set up raid used as an ide drive)but from set up I can
choose which drive to boot from still no luck.Then grub start and my menu

Thank you
Ken Ellis
