Heya --

> My lilo.conf is perfectly normal and ok.

     Try adding a line to tell it where to find the Windows partition

> boot=/dev/hda
> map=/boot/map
> install=/boot/boot.b
> prompt
> timeout=50
> message=/boot/message
> linear
> default=linux
> image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.2.16-22
> 	label=linux
> 	read-only
> 	root=/dev/hda6
> other=/dev/hda1
> 	label=dos
        table=/dev/hda    #This tells LILO where the partition table

     These are all on the same physical disk, right?

Change this, run /sbin/lilo, (you should see two things listed), and
then try rebooting.  IIRC, Red Hat 7 has the graphical login, so you
should see both choices (linux and dos) in the upper-right corner of
your screen the next time you reboot.

Hope that helps,
