installing boot loader


hey. i'm new here. i'm trying to install GRUB to dual boot windows 98 and redhat 7.3. i partitioned my 20 gig hard drive with partition magic. when i go to install the boot loader it only lists my linux partition as bootable. how do i make the windows partition bootable?

i dont have any bootloader installed yet and i boot linux off a floppy. i was hoping it would be easy to fix before installing than haveing to edit the boot record or configurations after installing them.

if anyone has any info it would be greatly appreciated.

thanx

There are a lots of documents on web about creating a dualboot
using grub. You can pls search on the web, infact this site itself
has a lots of docs.
