Unhappy BOOTMANAGER on two harddisks

hi folks,

i would to install LINUX on my second hard disk (8GB)
The first disk (40GB) is used 4 win2Kserver on a NTFS partition.
I tried to install Mandrake with the bootmanager on the MBR partition. But i couldn't boot on any of the both OS.

Is there something special to configure for booting two OS on two different hard disks??

thanks for your quick answers

usually, linux bootloaders (LILO or GRUB) work fine with windoze, but I have heard of problems with win2k variants. if you're really desparate, you can install the boot loader into you linux primary (instead of the MBR) then use a boot disk (made during the install) to get to linux , at least until you find a real fix.
