If you must have windoze as well, it's very simple to make linux boot
through the NTLOADER. It's actually pretty cool, you just have to dd the
first 512bytes from your boot partition (so long as lilo is loaded onto the
first sector) to a file (call it bootsect.lnx), then copy that file to your
c:\ under windoze (use a floppy disk or whatever), and add the line in your
c:\boot.ini C:\bootsect.lnx="Linux". Those are the rough instructions, but
if you want the exact commands and whatnot just email me and I can send

Yeah, you don't actually have to use lilo at all. Some folks want to keep
windoz roaring on their pc's (can't imagine why) and don't want to be
confronted by the lilo. If this is the case, simply make a boot diskette or
CDrom. It'll boot up your box into linux and otherwise, will just boot into
