    Dual Boot RH9 and WinXP

    Hey all, I followed the pet for Win2K dualboot. Here is what I did and the results

    did the dd if=/dev/hda5 of=mnt/floppy/bootsect.lin bs=1 count=512

    Edited the boot.ini and added the line

    The boot menu showed up and linux was a choice. I selected it and it just sat there with a black screen and a cursor at the top.

    First guess is my /dev/hda5 is not the right one any other suggestions?
