Ok. I have search this forum for my question and have found some of the greatest information yet. You will find most of the information I think you will need at the bottom of the post.

I can't get lilo to boot to windows XP. I am pretty sure I have to just edit the lilo.conf file. I have no idea which part of it I should edit in order to add windows. If someone could just guide me there i would be really happy. I am like below a newbie at this point. I did search the internet and forums to figure this much out to this point i just can't execute.

System:

AMD Athalon 1.4GHZ

160gb WD HD 2 main partitions and ( windows wont see the whole drive so after the windows parition the is 21gb that linux sees and that is the /usr

2. 80gb Windows resides here
Radeon 9000 pro
