    adding loadlin to winxp boot.ini ?

    me again.... the question now !!

    i have slax on my f: drive waiting to be run as a live cd {dont worry about this }

    i have configured and beaten loadlin and my linux.bat file to work 100%

    i want to add, loadlin to my boot.ini file {winxp}

    using these parameters...

    { change dir to f: } _________- dont know the command
    { cd'ing to /dos/ } cd /dos ___________- me thinks this is correct (dos is the folder that contains loadlin, linux.bat and vmlinuz + inirtd.gz etc }
    { finally loading loadlins linux.bat} linux.bat __________-yet another assumption i might be incorrect...

    can anyone help me please ??

    Windows cant boot to linux, only the loader.
    mount grub/lilo/what ever to the root partition and do this
    ctrl+alt+F1/F2.. now type
    dd if=/dev/hda2 of=/mnt/floppy/linux.bin bs=512 count=1
    add to boot.ini
    that is all! ( oh and you will need a floppy to do it this way. Boot from the floppy one time, reboot and login to windows and add the changes)
