could you be more specific about what you mean here?
my experience has been that it really depends on your situation. i'd like
to know if i'm missing out on something fundamental.
my personal experience has been that being able to use a umsdos partition
under both dos/w95 and linux is quite handy given the limited size of some
hard disks -- i can easily store stuff to use w/ either operating system
w/ this setup.
i am using loadlin and a custom config.sys/autoexec.bat setup to do
dual-boots, and find this to be quite usable.
p.s. for those interested, details of the set up i'm using at:
