Linux & Windows...Dual Boot

I don't know if any of you know how to do this. I've done it before but I can't get LILO (Linux Boot Manager) to initiate the boot sequence for XP. I had it working at one time a long time ago.....but...problems came up so I formatted. Anyway. I have Linux up and running and XP up and running. I just have to switch between which hard drive to boot from in bios to get the other to work.

I have the LILO Xp choice pointed to the right HD and partition.

I have a 20 gig (Linux) and a 45 Gig (2 partitions with 1 being winXP and misc)

When I choose the WinXP choice from the boot loader it says booting WinXP....but it sits there forever. Anyone know how to fix this...or EVEN BETTER Make it so the XP boot manager will load linux. I'm pretty sure if I played with this..I could get it to work. Thx Guys

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
