Redhat Linux Dual Booting problems


Hello,
I am new to this board but I hope I can still get help as a n00b

I have just installed RedHat Linux 7.2 onto my laptop on a separate partition to my windows XP one. Once it installed I saw the boot screen and it only showed linux.
Linux works fine so I have tried to re-install windows, once the setup had started it said that a version of windows already exists and asked me if I wanted to try to repair it. So I did so, it all went fine but I still dont see it in the OS choice screen.

Please can any of you help me fix thisstrange problem?
Thanks,
Alec

You have to edit Lilo or GRUB.

You just have to add windows/dos in Lilo or Grub.
