how to install win2k and redhat 9

I used to have win2k pro then I formatted it and installed redhat 9 on it(hard disk1), and I had another fat32 hard disk(hard disk2). The grub was coming up at first. Then I later installed win2k pro on hard disk1, so that i can have to os on it and be able to dual boot, but now it boot straight to windows and forgets about the linux. Then I formated the win2k pro and installed grub again and now the boot loader is working.

How can i install win2k pro back on it and be able to dual boot.

Thanks (Pls urgent)

Install Windoze. Being the brute that it is, Windoze will overwrite the MBR to install its own bootloader.

Then boot from your linux CD. I'm not familiar with RH9's features, but what you're looking to do is get it to install grub in the MBR of /dev/hda (which I assume is hard disk 1). could be as simple as doing "grub" from a commandline - I use lilo, so I'm not familiar with Grub config options.

They can play very nicely together - you just have to make Windows play by the rules.
