Well, I came up with an idea this morning, and I need a little help. I wanted to install Mandrake Linux on my old 6GB HD and use the BIOS boot order to control which one loads (I have WinXP & Win2000 installed on my current HD). I don''t have enough space to install Mandrake on my current HD. How do I get it to install LILO on the right drive, because when I tried it earlier, it wrote over the bootloader on the WinXP drive and rendered it unbootable. Luckily I was able to use a Win2000 CD to undo it.

Tell mandrake to install lilo(the bootloader) in the MBR. Then, configure the boot options to allow a dual boot to windows or mandrake.
