Angry Dual-boot problems - suse 8.1


I recently installed SUSE 8.1 on a HDD, set as the primary boot device (hda). I have another HDD with Win98 (hdb), which I still require from time to time.
Problem is, for some reason I can't dual boot. The bootloader has Windows as an option on hdb1 which is correct (the FAT32 disk is partitioned into two), but it just won't boot Windows.
Strange thing is, I don't have this problem with Mandrake 7 which I had been using before, but I don't really want to go back to an outdated distro.

I did notice that the SUSE mount-point for Windows is Windows/C, which differs from the way it is mounted in Mandrake, but I have fiddled with this without any luck.

Please help...

Please don't post the same question more than once. I'll request that this thread be closed.
