Unhappy Dual boot


hi,

I hv an 10 GB HDD for linux and a 3 GB hdd for win 2000.. Happen to FIRST install Linux on the 10 Gb driver (Primary Master) and later win 2000 on the primary slave (3 Gb)..

My problem: LILO does not recognize the windows drive and shows only linux in the boot option... I know the ideal way wud hv been to install windows before BUT is there any way, i can make lilo to read and boot windows during start up??

Any help wud be much appreciated..

TIA,
Sandeep

If you're still using LILO, then you should be able to just add another section to /etc/lilo.conf

other=/dev/hdb1
optional
label=windows 2000, even though it's annoying

and then re-run lilo
