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
