Question Linux booting problem

Hello Friends

I have installed RH9 along with Win XP. Problem is at the booting time, PC boots automatically from Win XP and no boot option for Linux appears. However, PC is booting fine with Linux bootable. I don't know where i have installed LILO but i made changes in lilo.conf file with delay=40 but nothing happen. Root / is installed at /dev/hda9.. Please suggest what should i do. Thanks.

What did you install first? Windows XP or RH9?? Also if you updated lilo you have to run the command "lilo" before restarting and to have it take affect.
