Linux R.H 7.3 boot disk


I just installed R.H 7.3 on my hard drive that already had Win NT and Win2000 installed on it. Now when I log out or shut down I'm automatically rebooted to Linux. I did not create a boot disk during installation and was told by a classmate that if I make a boot disk it would fix the problem. Is this true and if so how do I make a boot disk using R.H. 7.3?

Did you installed any boot loaders? GRUB or LILO?

and to keep you busy take a look at couple of howtos for dual booting NT and linux:
NT and linux on separate drives:

NT and linux general (and I believe it describes your situation)
