Here is the problem:
I have been trying to get lilo or grub to work on this Dell Precision 530 that has xp on the first hard drive and linux on the second hard drive. Here is the info from syslinux.cfg and lilo.conf.anaconda:
append initrd=initrd.img root=/dev/sdb3
What I'd like to do, since linux only boots up from a floppy, is to somehow make the ability to choose between the two different procs. is there a way to do this, and if so, then how? I've found out that when I take xp out of the picture completely, the lilo works and I can choose between single and dual proc, but once I add the xp back in (after doing a complete hard drive wipe), then lilo won't come up and grub doesn't come up either...with only the boot disk option available for only a single proc bootup....
