Description of problem:
I have been conversing with Jennifer Lamb there at Red Hat about this problem. 
She recommended going this route after it seemed to be a major problem. Ok 
here's the problem we are trying to install a dual boot with Red Hat 7.2 and 
Win98se. After installation of Linux, the system reboots and goes straight into 
Windows. I sent Jennifer my lilo.confg file and a screen print of the HD 
partition. We can use the same installation setup for 7.1 and it works fine. I 
will be glade to email with the computer equipment, lilo.confg file and the 
screen print on what and how we are setting things up. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
2.Partition Magic 7.0
3.Install linux 7.2


Actual Results:  Reboot, goes straight into Win98se without prompting for an OS

Expected Results:  Prompt for an OS to boot to

Please attach your lilo.conf file so I can see what it has in it.
