you simply need to edit your /etc/lilo.conf and add an entry for the windows drive, it's very straight forward. Try man lilo. Redhat has a lilo front end i believe in xwindows.

Then you must have chosen GRUB. Here is a useful link to a howto.

You can enter linuxconf as root and change the entries there.
However perhaps a better choice had been to use the NT loader and make an entry for Linux or perhaps you meant the NT Loader when you said: it wasn't lilo it was the other one' ?
Search the forums here, there's a thread where I discussed with Vorlin and some others the possibilities to create a multiboot.
here is the post with detailed explanations on how to setup your multiboot using lilo. (Sorry I never used another linux loader) look at the other posts in that thread for more info.

Im still lost... Can anyone help me to configure GRUB so i can see the Win2k (NTFS) partition?

Did you see that I added a link to my previous post...?
Yes, you are able to mount an NTFS partition as read only in linux.
(assuming that ntfs support was compiled into the kernel as a module) and
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda3 /mnt
Unless it's in your fstab as user mountable partition, only root has access to the ntfs partition.

forget GRUB and install lilo... It's easier to figure out (I think... haven't really played with GRUB that much). Just launch the lilo-configuration wizzard thingy... if u still have trouble then try and format ur master boot record and install lilo again.....
(lilo sometimes *****s up the mbr and the only (easy) way I've found to solve that problem is simply by formatting it...)
