Question can't boot winXP after installing Red hat 9.0


After installing Red Hat 9.0 Linux, I cannot boot WinXP.

Following is the cotenets of lilo.conf file:

prompt
timeout=100
default=linux
boot=/dev/hda
install=/boot/boot.b
message=/boot/message
linear

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-8
label=linux
initrd=/boot/iniyrd-2.4.20-8.1mg
read-only
append="hda2ide-scsi root=/label=lu

other=/dev/hda2
optional
label=DOS
I have a dual boot lilo loader.
When I try to install WinXp,
it gives me error:

Loading DOS
Error 0x40
Boot DOS


I tried the following:
1)tried to change default to windows
2)tried removing "optional" frpm other=......... paragraph.

but still I can't boot Win Xp,

Your help is highly appreciated.

Thanks.
