Red Hat AS Windows Xp dual boot problem on separate disks
I am quite new to Linux and wish to have a dual boot system with Linux (Red Hat Advanced Server) and Windows Xp. I have 2 hard disks installed. The master disk (hda) has Windows XP installed on it and I wish to install RedHat AS on the slave (hdb).
During the installation od Red Hat AS, the Windows boot partition is not picked by Linux. I chose to install GRUB on the first sector of the /boot partition, when i rebooted after installation, the system went straight to Windows.
So i did a re-installation (i'm still a newbie), this time installing GRUB on the MBR. After installation was complete, the Windows Partition was not picked up. I tried adding the following line to the grub.conf file:
title Windows XP
When I select Windows XP from the GRUB screen I get the following error:
Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format.
So to get windows back, i went to XP recovery concole and used the FIXMBR command. Now I can access Windows but have lost Linux.
Can anyone guide me on how to have a dual bootable system with Windows and Linux on separate hard disks? I would not like to re-install the Windows system on the master drive, is there a way?
Dual booting works fine if i try to install both systems on a single disk (tried on another machine).
Your help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
