    win2K not starting after linux installation


    hi, i have a win2K installed on drive C:, i have also D: E: and G: , total of 4 partitions. I format G: using Partition Magic and format it's file system to "ext2". Then i installed redhat linux 7.3 from a boot CD and i make linux checks and partition the linux file system itself(ext2). then after the successful installtion of Linux, when i try to boot from windows, it hanged up and remain on the "window is starting" stage.. please help. thanks in advance.


    PS. im using GRUB to boot on linux and it's fine.

    In my limited experience win2K had to be on the MBR. I had to use a floppy boot disk when I wanted to get to linux.
