The other approach is to tell lilo about NT.  Add the following to your
/etc/lilo.conf file:
	# Windows NT
replacing "???" with the designator for your NT partition (e.g., hda1).
Do "lilo -v" to kick the config changes into effect.  Next reboot you should
get the lilo prompt at which you can type the label of the OS you want (e.g.,
"Linux", "WinNT", etc.).  After 10 seconds lilo will boot the default OS.

If you want the default OS to be NT instead of Linux, change the
"default=Linux" (or whatever it is now) to "default=WinNT" in lilo.conf &
redo "lilo -v".
