Lilo off a debian install is much easier to use than grub. Not that grub
is bad, grub is good.  If you don't know how to get around in unix,
and you don't know about lilo, then you can still find grub, I did.

Lilo will load the nt partition, or the windows 95 partition, as the
case may be, and then start the windows multi-loader.

What you probably want is a program that finds the current boot and
enters it as a LILO entry, then for lilo to automatically put up
a menu of choices.

In my experience, it is always windows that overwrites my multi-

Heh :)
