Mandrake installation Problem


several month ago i downloaded mandrake 9.1 burnt it on CD and installed it fine, but sadly took it off

now i try to reinstall it, it goes through fine no problems untill i reboot, which then a load of "01" appear in the middle of the screen and when i hit a key the system reboots and it hapens again

the only difference is that i have a 2nd hdd (which is now the primary) and mandrake is installed on the secondary hdd

and i installed a NIC which mandrake picks up fine

any ideas why?

Your bootloader is not configured right. I've had nothing but grief running with Windows on the first drive and Linux on the second, so I swapped 'em. My preferred installation now. Makes life easier. To boot to your Windows, you can enter the stanza:

Code:
other=/dev/hdb1
label="windows"
boot-as=0x80
and it'll give you an easy 2 drive 2 boot. That is, if you use LILO.

That said, I mean swap your drives and install LILO to the Linux MBR. You'll lose your grief.
