    How to stop bootloader screen from disappearing??


    Hi!
    I am using redhat linux 8 and win98 on a pc. I want to format the win98 OS because there are some hardware conflicts.

    However,I have this experience that when I format windows on a pc with linux on it,when I reinstall windows and boot up,the OS bootup screen (LILO or GRUB) does not appear anymore. At that time,I reinstalled linux !!

    May I know how to prevent this situation from occuring or if it happens,what should I do to bring up the OS bootup screen again?
    I use GRUB as the boot loader.

    Please reply quickly if you can.....thanks!!

    Create a linux boot disk and use that to boot after you install windows. WHen you get back in linux, reinstall grub to the mbr.
