fedora 3 bin???


I would like to dual boot FC3 and XP pro but am not having very much success. I would like to get my hands on a fedora3.bin (boot image) or instructions on creating one so i can use NTldr to dual boot the system. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Right now I am looking at doing a full install of fc3 so I can somehow create the boot image and then wiping the drive and installing windows and then linux again and then modifying the boot.ini with the fc3.bin. Anyone have an easier way of doing this??

The boot image to use with the ntdlr is dependent on your install. Assuming your going to install via CD.

When you get to the boot loader step do not install to the MBR but the /boot partition.
Reboot the 1st install CD and boot rescue mode.
enter the command:
chroot /mnt/sysimage
Create the boot image per the instructions in the following link.
Reboot to windows and follow the instructions for modifing the boot.ini file.
