Better to use BOOTPART (BOOTPA20.ZIP, search the net). It runs under DOS.
It will set up a dummy boot sector in the NT menu; that boot sector
redirects and boots from your Linux partition, which has LILO installed
in the boot sector. So you just run lilo as normal and don't need to update
the one NT has.
