On computer startup??
 
Hello!

I just installed debian on my second harddrive (keeping windows on my first harddrive). After Installing debian I noticed that when I restarting my computer, debian starts at once and i cant get access to windows...???

Im guessing some file got overwriten? Any ideas on how to make it possible to choose whitch OS to start at startup? Im normaly a windows user and not used to changing in files to make things the way i want them, since i never used linux before... i would really appreciate a step by step answer if any of you like to help :)

try adding this to your /etc/lilo.conf
Code:

other=/dev/hda1
label=winxp

then run /sbin/lilo
