If I understand correctly, you have Windows 2000 with an NTFS partition and are going to install Red Hat?

I think Red Hat will automatically remove the Windows bootloader when it installs the LILO or GRUB bootloaders... it'll overwrite whatever is in the master boot record.

Sorry I guess I was not clear. I have redhat installed, and the it installed I think grub. I would like to get rid of that, but do not know how. Thanks for your help so far.

So you are dualbooting Red Hat and Windows 2000? With Grub?

You want to get rid of Grub and replace it with... ? the windows bootloader? Lilo - the LInux LOader?

In Windows XP, the cd has the fixmbr & fixboot commands on it for restoring the bootloader, I think 2000 has something similar. If not, get a Win 9x boot disk and run 'fdisk /mbr' from it.
