    Here is my problem, i have SUSE 10.0 on the master drive and Windows Xp home on the slave. Can any one tell me how to make the bootloader load windows?
    I have tried using Lilo and Grub. Grub just gives me an error and Lilo says that Windows is loading and does nothing.

    Post the contents of your grub.conf file, and I'll take a look for you
