RedHat Linux 6.2 and Windows 2000

After I installed Windows 2000 I have been unable to upgrade from RedHat 6.1 to 6.2 nor can I even install it. The 6.1 version (accessed through LILO or boot disk still works fine). The process stalls after the installer finds the various Linux partions but seems unable to access sdb5 (where RedHat is). I was able to install Caldera 2.4 and SuSe 6.2 Linux after I installed Windows 2000 without problems. I have 5 versions of Linux on sdb3, sdb5 (RedHat), sdc1, scd2, sdc3 and swap on sdb4.

I think that there is a problem with your MBR. When you installed win2k, it maybe overwrote your MBR and this could be the problem. I have installed RedHat 6.2 prior to win2k and nothing went bad. Try installing RH 6.2, not upgrading.
