I'm new with Linux, i installed Mandrake 8.1 in a separated ide Hard Drive which is disc 2, win2000 is intallade in a scsi hard drive finaly win xp is installed in a ide HD disc 1, i tryed to use bootmagic 7 running from win2000 which show linux, when i reboot and from the bootmagic click on the linux key nothing happened just is looking for lilo, after tryed several options, i went in bios setup and change the boot setings from scsi to idehd2,after reboot from the bootmagic the key linux worked, but when i reboot again and go back to win2000, the key didn't work, so i had to use partition magic to unhide win 2000 partition, and change the setings again to scsi, so this is my nightmare.
can some one with enough patient to show me step by step another way how to use the three OS.
Can i boot from a floopy? if yes how do i creat such floopy?
Thank you very much in advance for any help i can receive
