I just installed Fedora Core 6 this morning and i didnt install grub because well i like my bootloader and my master boot record just how they are :thumbsup: So now i ahve a random FC6 partition with no way i know how to boot it. Im going to try bootpart when i get home (atm im at school) but i doubt itll work. I do have Xandros Desktop 4 with LILO installed on its own partitioin...i just dual boot it with bootpart. could i add Fedora Core 6 to the startup list somehow? how do i access the startup list in LILO? in GRUB it was just in the control panel, but it doesent have a list change in Xadnros control panel, just default chooses. Can anyone answer these *many* questions?

Thanks
Nick
