    I have two hard-disks. On one hard disk I first installed Linux (RHEL-4). At this stage my boot loader was grub. Then I installed Windows on second hard-disk. Due to which grub was over written by boot loader of windows. How ever all my linux partitions on other hard-disk are safe.

    I want to make my system dual boot with option of windows and linux without reinstalling linux. Please help me!!!!

    Boot through your RHEL CD/DVD. It will ask for Install, Upgrade, Rescue. Choose
    Rescue. There should be a similar procedure. Since I have not used RHEL.
    Goodluck.
