Question Dual Booting - XP/LILO loader

This may be a trivial issue, but here it goes anyway.

I am dual booting XP and RH9, and everything is ok, but there is one small issue that is bugging the crap out of me.

When I select RH9 in pre-bootup selection, it brings up a GUI Red Hat screen where I can select DOS or LINUX, and one other odd one. I want it to boot linux right away without having me make that selection.

Any ideas?

This should be fairly trivial - man lilo.conf and edit your lilo.conf to remove any prompt or wait = <number> sections (I think the wait bit is right, it might be delay or similar) and then make sure the OS you wish to boot is the default (I forget how, use man lilo.conf). Run lilo, and it should then boot the OS you select without prompting.
