I had Windows 98 on C: and windows XP on D:. I then installed Fedora Core 3 on the non-dos partition. The installation went well. But then when i tried to start Windows XP i got the message "hal.dll misssing or something like that and asked me to reinstall it. I downloaded the file and then copied in System32 folder but one was already there. Even if i replace the problem persisted. Windows 98 is running fine. As far as i can get it there shuold be a problem with boot.ini. Well the same problem occured twice on different computers and even heard the same from one of my friends. I think a few of u must have also dealt with it. Please help me out.
