Help. I have windows XP and wanted to try Linux. I bought a copy of Suse Linux 9.3 Professional and tried to install it to a slave drive. Now everytime I tun on my PC I get a GRUB error 18, and my PC does not go any further, therefore I cannot even boot into windows. Can anyone help as I am now a bit stuck.

Sounds like a corrupt boot record.

Do you have a winXP disk?

I run fdisk /mbr, which now loads XP, how can I use Linux??

You will need to reinstall it again.

I have done as you have suggested and unfortuantly I get the same error. Is there anything else I can try?
