I haven't had to try to integrate Lilo with XP, but with earlier windows
I found it *easier* to let windows do its own thing and keep Lilo
installed on the linux partition.  IIRC XP comes with its own boot
manager - so perhaps you could install Lilo on the Linux partition and
add a boot entry to that partition from XP - then if XP plays around
with the MBR it doesn't mess up Lilo.


P.S.  Does anyone know if XP is an acronym for eXtra Pains (or maybe
	eXtra Panes) ?
