Hi all, i used to have linux a few years back and i recently decided to reinstall it but i am having a few problems. I currently have windows xp 64 bit and i am trying to install fedora 6 as a dual boot. i have 2 hard drives, and orignally installed fedora on the first one, and it worked great. then i tried to install windows, but it deleted my linux drive because it was on the first harddrive, then i installed windows on the first, and now tried to install linux on the second but it doesnt do the dual boot, i guess because linux was not written onto the mbr. i tried putting the linux cd in again and changing the mbr, but it didnt work, and then when i reinstalled linux with the mbr changed, neither system would boot. i have tried every order of installation but cant get it to dual boot. I tried changing boot.ini in windows and adding a linux option with the root as \boot but i think that just makes it look in the c: drive since it didnt work anyway. anyone know what i can do?
