I hv win xp on a 10 Gb HDD (primary) and RH 7.1 on a 3Gb Hdd (secondary)..
When I installed Linux, it overwrote the xp bootloader and I was able to log in only to linux.. Using the XP Cd, I executed FIXMBR and now I can enter only into XP!
I do hv a Linux boot disk and am unable to boot into the linux.. Upon booting with the startup disk I get 5 options but they r all about reinstalling/upgrading or troubleshooting linux..
I tried the troubleshooting option and got a shell prompt but do not know how to proceed from here!
RH7.1 hangs midway when I tried to use the graphic install.
But in either the graphic install or the text install, it never asks me as to where to install Lilo..
My basic problem right now is booting into linux.. How do i get into the linux partition ??
I can reinstall linux for all its worth but i guess the same problem will repeat with linux overwriting windows bootloader..
Can anyone help me out??
