I have a box with Win95 (FAT32), and Linux. To boot, I use a
bootmanager called OSBS, which in use and operation looks and feels
much like OS/2's bootmanager. The latest version is 20b8 if I'm not

It is fairly simple to use and install (it even has a function to make
a backup of the existing MBR), and I have then installed lilo on the
partition I boot linux from, and the Win95 partition works fine as

The install program marks the FAT32 partitions as "unknown", though,
but I haven't had any problems wth it yet (two months or so).
