The Win2k/NT bootloader can boot Linux, but it's a bit convoluted. It's
documented (for NT at least) in the Linux+NT-Loader Mini Howto.

Frankly, I always find it an awful lot easier to just use LILO. It used
to cause no end of grief, but I've found in recent versions it'll boot
damn near anything.
