Getting back the boot manager
Here is what happen.... Installed Windows XP then Mandrake !

So Mandrake installed a boot manager ! Anyway, there was a storm and Windows lost some system files so I had to re-install Windows ! Well now Windows took over the boot manager so I cant get back into Mandrake !

What do I need to do in order to duel boot again ?

Hi G Money

You could try booting from the 1st Mandrake CD

Press F1 at first screen

Go into Rescue mode - It will give you an option to re-install LILO.

boot from the first mandrake cd
press f1
type rescue
press enter (on the first entry about the boot manager)
press enter, (or yes, i can't remember) to confirm
take the cd out
