XP Suse Linux 9.1 dual boot


Hello,

I am new to Linux.

I had a dual boot system running with XP Pro and Linux. XP SP2 trashed my system. I had to reinstall XP. This cleared my LILO setup out from the drive. I have tried to reinstall from disks but it looks like I would need to reinstall Linx as well. The Linux drive is awsome and do not want to wipe it.
how else could I boot to Linux from XP?

Thanks for your help,

Skippy

if your linux partition is intact, just insert the suse disk like you were doing an install, within a few screens it will allow you to "boot installed system" then go into yast and re-run the bootloader configuration to fix the mbr.
