Hi !
I have win95 and NT 4.0 and i have installed Redhat 4.2.
on my C: drive there is this file called boot.ini.
Now I want to edit that file so i could boot linux/redhat from the boot meny.
So what shuld i write???
when i installed redhat i sad that the liloboot should be on my first sector on the disk, i choose my partition that i have linux on.
Now i cant come in to Linux anymore...
I do know that there is a program called loadlin, do i have to use that? I have tried that but it doesnt working. If there is no way to edit the file boot.ini how do i use loadlin??
please help !!!
regards vigge

[Operating Systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Windows NT Workstation Version 4.00"
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Windows NT Workstation Version 4.00 [VGA mode]" /basevideo /sos
