Install Suse 8.0 Pro on Win2k

Help,
I tried to install Suse 8.0 Pro on Win2k but now I cannot boot either win2k or linux. I can boot linux if i boot from cd however.

When I reboot my machine I get a screen full of 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10...etc.... If I boot from cd to get linux going and run lilo i get the following errors
Warning: BIOS drive 0x82 may not be accessible

tks

Your Linux installer didn't write to the MBR properly. I've seen the same error when I tried to ghost the HDD over with Symantec Ghost. Did you try rerunning the linux installer from the CD-ROM? I think you should still have your Win2k files intact. If you want to be safe, hook the HDD up to another machine as a slave drive and copy whatever you need from your Win2k partition(s).
