ntldr.exe missing after install RH AS 3.0 in single SCSI HDD.

DELL Poweredge Server.

Single Quantum 90GB HDD connected to integrated Adaptec 7899 SCSI controller.

first partition is 2500MB NTFS Windows 2000 server.

Create partition for linux RHEL 3.0

/boot - 100MB
/ - 2000MB
SWAP - 512

install grub in first linux boot partition.
after install, ntldr.exe missing on screen and do not see grub menu at all.

Any steps to enable multiboot for windows 2000 server / RHEL 3.0 . ?

I've had this before.
The problem is most likely that the partition numbering is different from what your boot.ini expects.

You have a line where it says something like:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect

Chances are that after creating the new partition it is now "...partition(0)" - and therefore it can't find ntldr.exe on that partition. Change boot.ini to reflect your new settings, and it should boot.
