I'm not sure if I understud this, but you do not.
I assume you boot the RedHat installation from CD an installed it on the
2nd HD not having a floppy present.
You've 2 chioces:
have the RedHat-installer insall LILO on the MBR of the first HD. The
installer should have included the Win2000 Installation in the LILO menu.
If not: "man lilo.conf" would show you how to do it. Now yo see LILO menu
first to choose Linux or w2k and the w2k boot menu aferwards (if you see it
place LILO on MBR of 2nd hd (the one you installed RedHat on).
Mount the Win2000 partition (eg. mount /dev/hda1 -t ntfs /mnt)
Baybe you need to add ntfs-support to your kernel. building it as a module
and using "instmod" should do it without reboot...
copy MBR 2nd hd to a file on the Win2000 patition
(dd if=/dev/hdb bs=512 count=1 of=/mnt/bootsect.lin
be carefull, read "man dd"!)
edit boot.ini of W2k:
make sure that "timeout" is greater zero ;o)
As you have to redo lilo at every change of the Linux kernel you'd also
need to re-copy the MBR in this case.
