Using Suse 9.1 Pro - windows 2000 won't boot


Hi, my partition table looks like this:

/dev/hda1 23.4gb Fat 32
/dev/hda2 51.0gb Extended
/dev/hda5 47.5gb Reiser
/dev/hda6 3.5gb Reiser
/dev/hda7 swap

I first installed suse linux 9.1 pro on the extended partition because i needed to use the yast partition tool. I left /dev/hda1 unformatted. And after installing linux i installed win2000.

I added this to menu.lst in /boot/grub

title Windows
root (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

now when I try the Windows option in the bootloader it says my partition type is fat32
and then starts outputting L 99 99 99 99 99 99...

the 99's keep coming

I can boot into linux perfectly normal.

I tried adding the rule "makeactive" but I'm still getting the 99 99 99 99 ... output.
I'm clueless

Hi, I've solved the problem by using the "repair an installed system" on the win2000 cd.

That did not change my master boot record and I was able to boot into windows.
But thx for your help anyway.

greetz,
