Re: booting linux

Dear Mr. Dina-natha,
copy the kernel files in /boot dir to ur windows partition
copy the loadlin.exe from the accompanied cdrom, usually in dosutils dir,
to windows partition
run loadlin from windows with root partition device as parameter(check
the syntax)

the above steps will let u boot to linux but to boot to windows u will
have to restart the system.
note: linux install here should not be done to overwrite the mbr, the mbr
that ur system might be using is of windows2000, where u might have given
dual booting option.
