Dual Boot two Windows & Fedora 3

Dear All,
Hope all is well.
Have done this in the past with W2k Server, XP Pro & Redhat 9. GRUB was used however not sure whether it was placed on the MBR or the first boot partition or something like that...any tips are appreciated.

You can put GRUB on the MBR with /sbin/grub-install /dev/hda. Just point it to the two windows partitions. Or you can use the windows boot loader, by editing the C:\boot.ini file. See the tutorials on the net on how to do this

It is relatively easy (copy paste )
