after reinstalling the duel bootloader (lilo) it all works fine for booting mandrake 9.2, but when I ask it to boot XP it comes up with error 0x04. I understand this is a fairly common problem, but I am yet to find/understand a solution. Anyone done it already?

Can you please post us your partition setup as well as your /etc/lilo.conf file so we can see if that's configured correctly? Thanks.

I've got two hard drives; mandrake on hda and xp on hdb, the partitions are still in their automatically configured states (3 on hda and two on hdb). Lilo reckons it should be booting to hdb2 when it trys for xp, but as I said, finds an error 0x04.

Here's the lilo.conf file you thought might be useful, anything you do find will be really appreciated; I simply get lost in this kind of script analysis!

boot=/dev/hda
vga=normal
default="linux"
keytable=/boot/uk.klt
prompt
nowarn
timeout=300
message=/boot/message
menu-scheme=wb:bw:wb:bw
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label="linux"
root=/dev/hda1
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="devfs=mount splash=silent splash=silent splash=silent hdc=ide-scsi acpi=ht resume=/dev/hda5 splash=silent"
vga=788
read-only
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label="linux-nonfb"
root=/dev/hda1
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="devfs=mount splash=silent splash=silent splash=silent hdc=ide-scsi acpi=ht resume=/dev/hda5"
read-only
other=/dev/fd0
label="floppy"
unsafe
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label="failsafe"
root=/dev/hda1
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="failsafe devfs=nomount splash=silent splash=silent splash=silent hdc=ide-scsi acpi=ht resume=/dev/hda5"
read-only
other=/dev/hdb2
label="windows"
table=/dev/hdb
map-drive=0x80
to=0x81
map-drive=0x81
to=0x80

cheers again for any help!
