I believe that XP has the nt loader. Check out this mini-howto and see if it's useful.

Question What lilo version?


I'm having the same problem not only with Red Hat, but with several other distros. The only one that seems to work fine is Mandrake.

What Lilo version did you install?

I got one of the latest versions of Lilo and installed that... It seemed to look different being as it had a red box on bootup (haven't came across one like that before). Now I run FreeBSD on that computer and am not having a problem since the drive that was for Windows 98 is now just a backup for the BSD drive.
