System Commander and LILO serve the same function--multiple boots.

Run LILO from Linux to create a boot sector record on the partition other
than the one from which SC runs. You should have all the kernel options set
up in the LILO config file (somewhere in /etc?).

Set up SC (I'm guessing here) to point to that partition for Linux. Then,
when you select Linux from the menu (?), the rest should just work.

There are FAQ/HOWTO/mini-HOWTO's for LILO that should help, as well as the
man page.

Good luck
