Re: Which Boot Manager?

if gets to the point where nothing else works, you can always use loadlin,
boot linux from dos mode.  just need a copy of the kernel on a dos

*little* more complicated involves copying the boot info from linux to a

for your situation though, with that ezdrive software(curse it
silently) i'd probably go with loadlin if i was in your position.

if you use loadlin though make sure to do it from dos mode(safe dos
mode) to avoid any drivers/etc loading before.
