Exclamation Mandrake/XP dual boot??


Hi everyone

I recently installed mandrake 8.2 on a pc that already uses XP Pro.

The problem is now everytime that I boot up the computer it gives me the option of booting linux or window NT, but i dont have this. When I push NT it goes to a screen that says please insert boot disks.

How can I get the PC to recognize the XP os and give me the option to put with it.

Please Help
Thanks

It's in lilo

You need to edit your file called /etc/lilo.conf, then run lilo.
But before you charge into this please thoroughly read your Mandrake documentation on lilo.
