If you have LINUX setup to boot into GUI, you may want to add a delay so if you want to add any options like what runlevel. I have my delay set at 15 seconds although I only have Mandrake LINUX on my computer.
You need to instal lilo or grub, create correct configuration file (there are distros that have configuration programs making it easier) - configure it to install into the MBR (/dev/hda), also add options for other systems. Then you need to run lilo/grub to write the changes to disk.
