> You should also be able to boot from the CD.  Check your BIOS settings for the boot sequence and set them to look for the CD first, then the hard drive.  Of course, I don't know if your Mandrake CD is, in fact, bootable.  That's just the next step I would take.

Thanks Ron!
 It's working! It's funny that I have 2 different versions of Mandrake 8.0 ( one with 7 CDs and the other with only 3 CDs ). I had tried on my own to do what you suggested with the first version but it wasn't working. Then I tried with the second without your suggestion ( I can only guess ) so when I tried it again with your suggestion I was a little surprised to see it working. Now I just hope that Lilo will work and allow me to boot in and out between Windose and Mandrake.
Thanks again!
