BootLoader QUestion


Heya

ok ive got mandrake and windows partitioned on my system. im keeping windows there until i can set up the web server on the mandrake 9.1

90% of the time i want to log into windows so how do i get it so that the bootloader lists windows at the top of the menu to boot into.

im not lazy its just that i need the windows to be selected in case of computer crashing. is there an easy way to do this?

Depends on what driver, etc, as they can all differ from one to the other. Usually packages/drivers and such come with README and INSTALL files which explain the installation process of whatever you are installing.
