    Dual Booting Question


    I want to install Redhat 9.0 on a second harddrive i have and dual boot it with XP.. I was wondering if it is possible to hook the linux harddrive up as the slave and leave the windows xp harddrive as the master but still have the linux bootloader to choose which OS to boot..

    Windows XP Home (NTFS)

    Instead of using LILO, use GRUB. I believe you can choose this during installation in Redhat.
    The best things in life are free.

    Indeed. Avoid LILO like the plague.

    I did once....I think. It's the one without the "eyecandy", right? Or am I hallucinating again? :o

    It often does come configured with a lot of eyecandy, yes, but in its raw mode, it is incredibly powerful.
