I had Windows200 installed with no problems. Now, i decided to install Linux (Red Hat 6.1) as well but i'm having problems booting up. Whem i reboot the PC, i don't get LILO message and Windows 2000 starts up. I think the problems is writing in Master Boot Record.
Can someone help me?

Hi... firstly, if you are installing on the same hard drive (which isn't encouraged), or if you have installed Linux into a second hard drive (encouraged), i assume that you have made a boot-up diskette...

as to your problem specifically, please set your CMOS settings' boot up sequence to boot from A: drive first then C: drive(assuming your windows is installed on C: )...

slip in your Linux boot-up floppy disk and restart the computer...

it should work...
