Duel boot into windows, please help!!
I currently have a system where LILO controls the boot loader.
I would like to get back to dos boot screen with Win2K and XP if i can.
Can anyone suggest any help
System is as follows:
Bootable drive 30G Win2K and XP (15G each)
Linux drive 20G
When linux was installed LILO was installed as well but on the bootable drive, i cant get into Linux as it crashes every time.

boot from a DOS bootdisk (or windows rescue disk, you did make them during install, no?)
then start "fdisk /mbr" and reboot to re-activate your windows.
linux can be booted from a dos disk too, if you have loadlin.
another idea: try to stop lilo pushing and holding down your SHIFT key.
then, when it says "LILO: " you press tab to see the kernel images names. say its name is "linux", you would enter then:
to get a console and start repairing.
