Re: WIN NT and Linux



You can't install LInux with NT (or any other OS for that matter) running .  Since you
already have saved a good amount of space, you're well ahead of the game.  All you
have to do is insert the linux boot floppy, reboot, and follow the directions.  When
you install LILO, be sure to NOT install LILO on the master boot record, only use the
superblock of the linux partition.  You'll probably want to make a boot floppy as
well.  There exists a HOWTO concerning putting Linux into NT's boot manager.
Personally, I like LILO better, and use it for NT, 95, and of course Linux.
