Trying to have a dual boot system with lilo


i have mandrake 8.0 and win 2k pro using ntfs file system,

when i installed lilo it didnt add the win2k partition to it so i now cannot boot into win2k. I tried to edit the /etc/lilo.conf but didnt now what setting to add its installed on hda1 i think.

Does anyone know what i will need to add to get it to work,

Try adding :

other=/dev/hda1
label=win2k
table=/dev/hda


Then run /sbin/lilo and you're done.
