RH7.2/WIN98 Grub vs LILO


. I have a duel boot/duel disk setup. Linux is on hda and Win is on hdb. Before installing RH7.2 over RH 7.0 I was using LILO to boot. Windows didn't like being on the second drive so I fooled it with this entry in /etc/lilo.conf:

. label=dos
. map-drive=0x80 to=0x81
. map-drive=0x81 to=0x80

. After installing 7.2, GRUB became the boot loader and Win could not be loaded. /boot/grub/grub.conf looks like this:

title DOS
. rootnoverify (hd1 0)
. chainloader +1

. I added rootnoverify (hd0 1) and it still would not boot Win. I switched back to LILO, but would like to know how to use GRUB and fool Win to thinking it is on the primary drive.

. Thanks,
. farmergreg
