Dual Booting w/ two hard drives- Help!

Ok so I got Red Hat v9 on IDE0 and WinXP on IDE1 and it works fine. They can boot seperately. The only problem is that WinXp doesn't recognize the IDE0 hard drive that RH9 is on, it thinks that its a removeable media drive. And lRH9 isn't mounting the WinXP hard drive. How do I get them to recognize eachother?

well xp will not recognize ext3 nor you can read from it., however you can mount your xp partition in Rh with

#mount -t vfat /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows

replace the hda1 with actaully Xp partition and creates the "windows" directory under /mnt

to get windows to recognize linux partitions i think you'll need "third-party" software...

also, it's not advisable to be messing with your linux partitions from windows for obvious reasons...

mounting windows in linux: is your windows partition fat32 or ntfs???
