...or, you can edit the windoze config.sys and
autoexec.bat files:

for editing config.sys...:

menuitem=Linux, Linux
menuitem=Win98, Win98
menudefault=Linux, 15

shell=c:\linux\loadlin.exe c:\linux\linux
root=/dev/hda5 ro


for editing autoexec.bat...:

goto %config%


that's it.  the only things you may need to customize,
according to your system setup, are: 
a) make a directory in windoze called, "linux." 
b) copy your linux kernel to that windoze "linux"
c) make sure the specification "hda5" in config.sys
matches the actual partition where linux resides in
your box.  for example, if your linux system resides on
/dev/hda6, make sure to have "root=/dev/hda6 ro" in the
config.sys file.  (no prob.)

...works fine for my boxes.
