Yes, that helps. You can mount this partition in both distros, just use
different names for the kernel images (though you should even be able to
use the same kernel image). You should know how to setup lilo properly (or
whichever boot loader you use).

Should contain something like

	label=GNU debian
	label=old distro

but I'm not 100% sure.


The program required me to install Windows 95 or better. So I installed Linux.
