Hey guys, I have a BIG problem, I'm a complete newbie, just installed redhat 9 and everything went ok until I restarted my pc and tried to use my win 2k (I did a partition with partition magic) but everytime I turn on my computer (or restart it) it logs me automatically to linux, my question is...How can I get back to my win2k??? I'm on the brink of autodestruction (lol again) so I would appreciate your help a lot! thanks in advance

What boot loader are you using?

If you are using lilo open up /etc/lilo.conf with a text editor and add this to the end of the file:

other=/dev/hda1
label=windows
table=/dev/hda

Then save and exit and run the following command:

/sbin/lilo

(This assumes that your windows partition is on hda1)

I dont think I'm using lilo, I think I used the one that comes with partition magic...

The default Redhat bootloader is grub. Can you describe what pops up before W2k loads?
