RE: Linux/WinNT dual booting (an idea...)

	You might find it a lot easier to use the NT Boot loader to boot
your linux partition 
- I'll be trying this myself soon & I'll let you know how it goes - there's
a mini howto on the subject

You could also try allowing LILO to boot from /dev/hdc1 boot sector (or
whatever it's on) and get the 
NT Bootloader to boot that partition directly - it should work (in theory
anyway) (take a look at the 
mini howto - it has examples of the syntax for boot.ini - it's a bit like
the /dev/xxx style)

Hope it goes well :)
