Weird dual boot question
Ok, heres the thing. I have Windows XP on an SATA HD. I have Linux on an IDE drive plugged into the primary master. So, when I boot up, I of course only can boot up to linux. How can I make it where I choose at start up. Oh, btw I have lilo, not grub.

i am not very familiar with lilo but you can refer to this website.
seems to me like all you need to do is edit the /etc/lilo.conf and addother=/dev/hdb

You need to install lilo to the MBR in order for it to run at startup. The link jpalfree gave you tells you how to do this.Registered Linux user #388328 || Registered LFS user #15880
