    Try to get a LILO boot disk. I don't know where to get one though. Try bootdisk.com

    At the end of the installation did you get the option to create a floppy disk? If so put it in & type I think....startx
    Sorry I can't remember if that's the command or not.

    Sorry. :rolleyes: Just reread your post. Sounds like it is something to do with xp's dual boot menu. Have you previously disabled it?
