Exclamation Dual boot MD9.1 / Win2k with a twist


Hello...

I have a dual boot issue i can't seam to fix.

I've read everything I can find but nothing is the same as how I did my install.

In short....
I removed my windows HD.
Added blank HD and made 3 partitions - Fat32 - Swap - Ext3.
Installed Mandrake 9.1 on the Ext3.

Mandrake boots fine.
I've re-added my win2k (NTFS) HD as a slave and am trying to dual boot the two now.


One item i've just noticed is on boot up I get an error twice (same error)

most of what is says is:
mount: wrong fs type or bad option, bad superblock on dev/hda

i've already been to ldp and the doc's the come standard with mandrake without success.
all their examples are either dual boot on the same disk or dual boot while both disks are present during the install.


Anyhelp would be great
Dobie.

here is my current lilo.conf:

boot=/dev/hda
map=/boot/map
vga=normal
default="linux"
keytable=/boot/us.klt
prompt
nowarn
timeout=100
message=/boot/message
menu-scheme=wb:bw:wb:bw

image=/boot/vmlinuz
label="linux"
root=/dev/hda5
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="quiet devfs=mount hdd=ide-scsi acpi=off"
vga=788
read-only

image=/boot/vmlinuz
label="linux-nonfb"
root=/dev/hda5
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="devfs=mount hdd=ide-scsi acpi=off"

You've gotta install the ntfs file system drivers... they're on the mandrake disks or at http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/
