K  provozovani NT a Linuxu na jedne masine, mohu rici jen to, co

I'm not sure this is on topic, but I have lilo/Linux as a menu selection on
my NT boot menu.  This is due to a post by John Valpine (jedev na mit.edu),
but who attributes it to Aiden McCaughey.  I give only the method I used
for my particular setup:

1) copy the mbr to a mounted floppy:
dd if=/dev/hda1 of=/mnt/floppy/linldr bs=512 count=1

2) run lilo with lilo.conf set to boot=/mnt/floppy/linldr (and floppy still

3) copy the "linldr" file on the floppy to your dos partition (I have Win95
and NT in the same DOS partition, drive C:)

4) edit the NT file boot.ini by adding a line:


5) reboot; as John says, "the NT bootloader will now display an option to
boot linux.  Selecting this option will take you to the lilo prompt"  (in
step 2 above I set the delay to 0, so for me selecting linux immediately
boots it...)

Sorry if this is a bit incoherent, John Valpine wrote it up in much clearer
way; perhaps he could be persuaded to repost it or make it a mini-HOWTO. It
works great!  If only WinNT worked half as well...
