Angry Problem with Multi-Boot

I've currently installed Linux Mandrake 7.1 on one onf my hard disk. The installation worked fine except I had to boot every time to Linux using the Linux Boot disk created during set-up. My problem is that I have another hard disk with Windows 2000 Professional and Windows 98 installed in Multi-boot. What do I need to do be able to create a menu in both hard disk running to boot with a menu of choices: [1] Windows 200
[2] Windows 98 [3] Linux Mandrake? Is it possible? I tried opening the boot disk but neither Linux or Windows can see any data on the boot disk. Can anyone help me out? . Please e-mail me at :

Haven't used Mandrake for a couple of years. But I think you can log in as Root and go to DrakBoot and configure the boot loader with Grub or Lilo and configure it to Master Boot Record of /dev/hda. I use Suse 8.0 and this is the config it uses. Assuming you have have windows on the C: Drive and Linux on another partion or HD. This may eliminate use of booting with floppy. And give you a menu. May want to wait on a second opinion.
