Re: Dual-Boot Win2K & Debian
Its my experience that you cannot use lilo per se with the win2k and debian combo. What I do is have the triple boot of debian, windows ME and windows 2000. I use the dd utility to get an image of the bootsector. I then add the entry of the linux sector to the boot.ini file for nt5.
Windows 2000 will always overwrite lilo if its installed on /dev/hda. Let me know if you need more help getting it set up.

An unfortunate requirement for a particular piece of software from my
workplace and the desire to play a few games is forcing me to put Win2K
on my desktop machine here at home, which used to be a "Windows Free
The question I have is, how to properly dual-boot Win2K and Linux? Does
2K act more like 95/98 which is easy to dual-boot from LILO, or is it
more like NT in which you edited the boot.ini file and could boot Linux
from the NT bootloader easier than messing with LILO?
Anyone doing this? I did a quick Google search and didn't find much of
value on the topic... yet.
