winxp/rh 7.1 dual boot


I'm feeling kind of lost so please excuse me if I'm not making much sense. I have winxp pro on my primary master drive and just installed red hat linux 7.1 on my primary slave drive. I installed lilo onto the MBR of primary master. But now, when I boot up lilo only has linux to choose from and I can't book to xp. Do I have to modify my lilo.conf in some way? How would I modify it? Thanks in advance for any help.

LILO

when you installed rh linux, did you configure the xp partition as a boot option? if not, you can add it to the lilo yourself.
