Angry [1st post] Dual Boot Suse & Win2k


Hi All

My old set up was Fedora with dual boot of Win 2K

How I installed last time:

1st I put Win 2K then Fedora this was say 18 months ago. That worked.

swoped from Fedora to Suse

Now I had used kill disk. I installed Suse Now I'm trying to install 2K, windows is not giving me an opshion to have dual boot! Is window not cleaver enough to see other o.s be it (Suse)

so do I have to start over again?

install order:

1. Win 2K
2. Suse

only been using 4 days Suse Liking the Yast

I need 2K for my Photoshop + games, Gime just doesn't cut it. Yes I know it's free

Thanks

Windows doesn't play well with others, it won't detect a non-Microsoft OS. Why do you have to reinstall Win2k?

No problem. I was just wondering what was wrong with the win2k installation you did with fedora. It should just be a matter of telling the new boot loader (if you did, in fact, load a new one with suse) that windows is there. But if you've already reinstalled...
