dual boot info lost after reinstalled win2k

Hi, I used to have win2k on IDE1 and redhat 9 on IDE2.

I have to reformat the win2k and reinstall it and I did.

After I have done so, I didn't see the dual boot screen anymore, it boot right to win2k.

How do I setup the dual boot again?

Windoze probably wiped your Master Boot Record (I think that's where the info is kept) during the install. I'd try using the original redhat CD to try to rescue. All you need to do is redo the lilo part, assuming that's your bootloader.

If you used Windoz' boot loader, you may want to modify c:\boot.ini .
