    Windows XP & Fedora Core 5


    Hi,
    Ive just installed XP after Fedora Core 5. Now the machine only boots into windows. In My Computer it cant see the linux HD but it does in Device Manager. I have tryed right clicking on My Computer > Properties > Advanced > Startup & Recovery Settings but it cannot see Linux. How do i make My PC boot into linux or let me choose which OS on the dual boot screen.

    Cheers,
    Tom
