    I just installed Linux 8. In setting up the options for booting it gave me only one choice besides Linux and that was DOS. My system was running Windows ME. I can not now boot to
    Windows. What can I do?

    That is the generic label for any win9x OS because it's DOS-based.
    Did you make a bootdisk for Redhat during installation?Better yet,you can boot off the Redhat CD into rescue mode and redo the bootloader to see both OSes.Here's the Redhat 8 guide on bootloaders.In rescue mode it should give you the bootloader option.Scroll to the top of the page for all the info.
