What I've done to have dual boot Windows NT and Linux is to use LILO.

Install LILO so that it will boot a "dos" partition, or Linux, and have
the "dos" partition boot by default.  It will load up the DOS partition,
and bring up NTLOADER from there.

NT is pretty ok, once you beat it into submission... :)
IT wants to be the one booting... but it doesn't have to.
