I had this issue between linux and windows and I had to install Lilo on the
first disk only because bios is giving the hand to the first disk and from
there you can setup your boot loader to recognize all systems available and
where they are.

I am not a specialist there, I just tell you what worked for me and what was
the explanation given to me.
