If you're that desperate, I suggest just going to the bios and
temporarily tagging drive C as "uninstalled." That way it won't boot
even if you can't get LILO to dual boot. Just install your bootloader on
drive D (hdb), and forget that drive C exists. I once did that in my
dark Window$ days so I can get two different Window$ installations to
live in peace and harmony. Now if you want Bill back, just go to the
bios and do the reverse, tag D as "uninstalled" and C as "installed."
