LILO dual boot


Hi guys,

I have a desktop which has windows XP and MDK 10.1 official on it. Normally, it is on Linux, and if I need something, I do SSH and ...

Sometimes I need to reboot the system to use Windows rather than linux but this usually happens when I am using my laptop, so I am away from my desktop.
I want to know how can I reboot the system via SHELL (SSH) and command it to go to Windows rather than Linux again.

I am by the way using Lilo.

Thanks

ali

Code:
# lilo -R windows
# reboot
where windows is whatever label you gave to Windows in your lilo.conf. See lilo(8).
