Thumbs down My RH9 is unbootable after ...

I have 2 partition on my PC.

1)WIN 2000 profesional
2)Redhat 9

After i format my C:WIN 2000 and did a new installation again on win 2000.

When my pc boots up.

It no longer ask me for which partition i want to boot.

I just automatically boots into Windows 2000.

I believe that the boot file in 2000 must overwritten the boot file in RH9.

I am a really new to linux, so can somebody teach me on what should i do
to allow me to have that boot screen where i can choose which partition i wish to boot.

Please explain in details on:

on what disk to use

and what command to type

and what should i see after i have type that command.

Hi novkhan,

I'm going to assume that you used grub as that us redhats default boot loader, I think the following how-to should help you out.

good luck getting it fixed.
