The LILO switch andy is on about is a possibility all depends on what
version of
lilo is bundled with RH8.0 and i vaguely recall that RH default kernal is
not compiled with
the NTFS filesystem module by default,i played with RH once and recall
having to rebuild with
Read Only NTFS into the kernel was 2.10.xx vintage.

My solution was to install windoze on FAT32 and have full R/W access in
linux,without the kernel shenanigans.

Good Luck and hope the info points you in the right direction,

BTW if any LUG members would like Suse8.1 Pro burnt to CD's give me an email
off the list.
