Question Fail to dual boot


Hi

I have installed red hat enterprise Linux 4 beside windows XP OS .
During installation I couldn't add \boot or \swap mount.

When trying to do that I get message like that
Could not allocate partitions as primary partitions .
However after installing Linux successfully
I cannot boot to window .
My machine only boot to Linux.
Can someone help me please.

Upon installing Linux as dual boot with Windows - Linux will boot automatically. So, while seeing boot loader screen, press down arrow and you can see the Windows OS option.

If that is not working, Can you give the output of /boot/grub/grub.conf?

Also try disabling the option "hiddenmenu" in /boot/grub/grub.conf
