But Linux boots ok on hda? If so, all you should have to do is edit the boot parameters for windows in /etc/lilo.conf. Probably it's booting from /dev/hdb, so try /dev/hdb or /dev/hdb1. If you still have no luck, post the contents of lilo.conf and the results of "fdisk hdb"
[Edit] ahem: "fdisk -l /dev/hdb" or "fdisk -l", not "fdisk hdb"
i don't know if anyone else has had any luck doing it another way, but
i think that windows is kinda picky. That it needs to be on the first
partiton and that needs to be a primary partition. Which means that
unless its on /dev/hda1 it wont boot properly.
again though, if anyone knows different, feel free to prove me wrong.
I loaded Fedora on a separate HD and couldn't get it to boot either. XP boots fine. I loaded the same version of Fedora on my laptop in another logical drive and it boots great. So no help but more ?????
