hi..friends...
i am a new linux user.i have tried to install red hat 7.0 with my
windows xp on the same computer without using any additional hard disk.
i have done all the required things and then created the boot disk.but
my system is not booting from the linux it always starts from xp and then
i was not able to login to linux.as a remedy i have tried to use LILO
in stead of boot disk then again when i restart the comp it boots from
windows only and i never get the familiar linux face.when i tried to open the boot disk in the windows the messege came that the disk is not
formatted but when i tried to fromat the disk widows failed format the
disk also.i am using a p4 comp with 256mb ram..plz suggest me what to do
