Dual boot - W2K and Mandrake 7.1


Ive got a feeling this is going to be the first of many so thanks in advance!
I've a 30GB IBM drive. I partitioned off 15GB and installed w2K then installed Mandrake 7.1 in the remaining free space. Now when the system starts the boot loader does not give me the option to boot to the Windows partition. I've a suspicion this may be something to do with the 1024Mb limit but is there a way round it? Heres my lilo.conf:

boot=/dev/hda
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
default=linux
keytable=/boot/uk.klt
lba32
prompt
timeout=50
message=/boot/message
menu-scheme=wb:bw:wb:bw
image=/boot/vmlinuz-smp
label=linux
root=/dev/hda5
append=" hdc=ide-scsi"
vga=788
read-only
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label=linux-up
root=/dev/hda5
append=" hdc=ide-scsi"
read-only
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label=failsafe
root=/dev/hda5
append=" hdc=ide-scsi failsafe"
read-only
other=/dev/fd0
label=floppy
unsafe

Having fun trying to get to grips with linux though!

Try adding this to the end of the lilo.conf file.

other=/dev/hda1
label=w2k


Don't forget to run /sbin/lilo after making the changes.
