Ůmegaflops, this is what I posted in your thread ' Already TRI booting ME, 2k, XP, about to add RH 7.3 PLEASE HELP!!! '.
Ůmegaflops, I'm sorry I took so long to respond. I've never done this before so I was doing some research. I think instead of giving you a long list of instructions to do the complete job, I'm going to break it down in parts.
OK, first install linux and when asked to make a boot disk, make one. Next, make sure to install lilo into the root partition. Try to remember which partition is the root partition. Is it hda2 or hda6 or whatever. You'll need this to use in the dd command to make a copy of the boot sector of the root partition. If you're not sure which is the root partition, run the command df -h and post the output here.
OK, that's enough for now. If you can get this done with no problems, then the next time, you'll be making a copy of your root partition's boot sector. Copying it to the xp partition and then editing your boot.ini file.
These are the pages I'm using to get the information to help you.
