newbie wants to dual boot win2k and mandrake

Hey there,

I'm looking for opinions on dual booting win2k and mandrake. Which is preferred, Grub or Lilo?

I found one nice article on how to dual boot using Lilo, and nothing on Grub yet (although I'm sure I will if I look hard enough).

i prefer lilo... easier for me since i started out with it to there seems to be more documentation on it too. you can also use the windows boot loader, as there are howtos on it to setup as well..
