Mandrake 8.1 and NTFS

I am getting ready to install Mandrake 8.1 as a dual-boot with Win2k. I did this before and lost the ability to boot to Windoze because it is NTFS. Does anyone know the steps?

Filesystem doest matter. LILO can boot most anything you through at at.

Dont worry, mandrake will set this up for you automatically.

LILO wasn't the problem. 'Drake booted fine (except for a video problem). 'Doze wouldn't boot. Just "Blue Screened". I think it's a problem with the MBR. It wants to think it is FAT32.
