I need to change my bootloader, I have been looking in the menu's for

someone please tell me where to look???




Do you want to change programs, i.e., from Grub to Lilo, or are you just
wanting to change the parameters to grub?

I am actually duel booting with winxp (for now) I need to see the setting it has for the win drive



You haven't specified which boot loader you are using, so I will assume it is GRUB. You can see what GRUB is using by editing /etc/grub.conf.

An example of mine is shown below. (note some lines are broken by the
e-mail client.)  I have four boot options to various systems listed.
===============================================

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this
file
# NOTICE:  You do not have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
#root (hd0,7)
#          kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda8
#          initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,10)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-20.9)
       root (hd0,7)
       kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-20.9 ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
hdd=ide-scsi ide0=ata66 idebus=66
       initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.20-20.9.img
title Windows XP
       rootnoverify (hd0,0)
       chainloader +1
title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2096.nptl)
       root (hd0,10)
       kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2096.nptl ro root=LABEL=/1
hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi ide0=ata66 idebus=66
       initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2096.nptl.img
title Red Hat Linux 8 for Dummies (2.4.20-20.8)
       root (hd0,4)
       kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-20.8 ro root=LABEL=/12 hdc=ide-scsi
hdd=ide-scsi ide0=ata66 idebus=66
       initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.20-20.8.img

============================

Hope this helps.
