    Accepted Solution

    Assuming your are using grub, edit /boot/grub/grub.conf
    to something like

    # section to load Linux
    title Red Hat Enterprise Linux (2.4.21-1.ent)
            root (hd0,0)
            kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.21-1 ro root=/dev/sda2
            initrd /initrd-2.4.21-1.img

    # section to load Windows
    title Windows
            rootnoverify (hd0,0)
            chainloader +1

    default=1 means choose the second OS (default=0 would boot linux)
