OK.....I have just installed RH9....it works perfectly!!!! Unfortunatly, that is all that works. I have a windows 2000 prof OS that I need to access but cant anymore. I have one 40 gig HD where all my Windows system files are. I have a slaved 20 gig drive, which is where I placed the RH9 partition (4 gigs) and swap drive (1 gig).

can anyone PLEASE help me out here...this is my first experience with Linux..and I really need to get to my windows OS....Im sure if i just took off the slave drive I could get to what I need...but I want this duel boot to work.....any help? Thanks so much in advance!!! Scott
I presume that ur using Grub boot loader at the first sector of the primary master..
in that case just lookinto /boot/grub file from ur linux.. and man grub will help u wth the changes to make ...

my red hat is not installed on the primary drive...my windows system files are all on the primary drive...on the slave is just addional programs, and then my linux partition and swap partition....i am using the grub boot loader, but my linux is installed on the slave drive...im not sure if this is a problem or not
I made the changes u recommended to the grub.conf file, and now when i select win2k i get another message saying it could not load windows 2000 because the file "ntoskrnl.exe" is either missing or currupt...please reinstall file....what should i do here??
