MultiBooting 2 XP Pro's and Linux
 
Hey. Your proably thinking what the fu**, but it is needed. I have a Windows XP Pro on C:\ drive (the root drive) and another XP Pro on a second drive, with Linux installed as well so basicalli

IDE 0
Partition 0: C:\WINDOWS (boot.ini, ntldr and all that crap is here)

IDE 1
Partition 0: Linux
Partition 1: D:\WINDOWS

lilo is in the MBR.. Now in the boot manager i can choose 'Windows XP' and it will bring up the NT loader allowing me to choose from the two xp installs. Is there anyway I can boot the second xp instllation straight from lilo.

so instead of this:

Lilo :Linux
: Safe Mode
: Windows XP (when i choose this i get the NT loader with this)
: Windows XP Professional C:\
: Windows XP Professional D:\
i want it like this

Lilo: Linux
: Windows XP Professional C:\
: Windows XP Professional D:\

I hope I made sense. Basicalli I want to remove the need for NT loader.

The below should work

other=/dev/hd*
label=WinXP-C

other=/dev/hd*
label=WinXP-D

Just replace * with whatever drive the two installs are on. That should work out just fine.
