Problem in booting

window like to have on primary partition . but since you have moved it to other partittion .. than primary.. so it will not boot..  
first make Linux Startup disk.. ...
then you can use win2000 installation disk to overwrite the MBR .. by recovery console.. use fixmbr and fixboot commands there.. but it will remove the linux bootloader.
Now again boot to linux using boot disk we had created.. then  use either

Code: [Select]
/sbin/grub-install for grub...


Code: [Select]
lilofor lilo..

U have to use only one of above..

Then u should be able to boot to both OS using.
