It's difficult to answer this problem since you do not give enough details about your problem. Answer these questions, and I can help you out:
1. Do you have LILO installed? 2. What partitions and drives are all the OS's on?

Current;y I'm able to have the multi-boot option. But I had another question to seek your advise that is I install another linux (Corel Linux) and the installation goes smoothly but when at the login screen, the screen starts to brink and it starts when try to start the KDE display manager. Pls advise.
Regards and thanks
Right, here's a solution. As far as I can tell, all you need to do is edit your /etc/lilo.conf file to include the following text:
boot=/dev/hda read-only prompt timeout=50 vga=ext #Windows 98 other=/dev/hda1 label=dos table=/dev/hda #Linux image=/boot/linux #Put the name of your kernel here root=/dev/hda3 label=linux #Windows NT other=/dev/hda2 label=winnt table=/dev/hda
You can edit it by typing:
To install lilo to the MBR
Obviously, you can use any text editor. That should solve your problem, unsless of course something else is wrong
