    dual booting (in reverse(with lilo))


    i've been using slackware 10.1 on a single 160gb hd with 60gb divided up into various system partitions and the remaining 100gb used for /home. i have been happy with this setup until recently, when, my need to use windows has become high enough for me to decide to install it on an old 10gb hd. my problem is, i have linux on my primary hd and xp on my slave hd and i cant get xp to boot using lilo. any suggestions on how to proceed will be appreciated(i'm not prepared to alter my primary hd configuration except the MBR).

    I can't think of anything that wouldn't load it, then again I'm new to linux.

    Configure your xp HD to lilo then save to floppy. Should be there when your computer boots up. If not i'll look into it
