fedora 13 dual boot with xp


I have an existing system with 2 XP OS (windows dual booting). I have installed fedora13 in another hard disk. During installation there was no mention of installing any bootloader. After installation i could not access linux at all. Whenever i boot i am always shown the windows dual booting screen with 2 XP options.

Thanks in advance.

There should have been, but try changing the order of the boot disks in the BIOS.
See if it'll boot XP from there (grub) as well.

Might boot to a live cd just to see what is where too.

You can add in linux to the xp loader too. Might have to see if grub was installed on the secondary disk or lilo or such.
