Done.  Installed and booting.


Seriously.  Install ME, the NT.  Ensure NT uses FAT, not NTFS.  NT will
now display a menu at boot.

Install linux.  Ensure that Lilo installs on partition, not MBR.  Then, if
your partition is /dev/hda4, mount the NT partition as /mnt, and 

dd if=/dev/hda4 of=/mnt/bootsect.lnx count=1 bs=512
Do this each time you rerun lilo in Linux

In NT, look at c:\boot.ini, and add the approriate line.  I am not quoting
the line to add, as a hurdle you MUST cross.  It is trivial, but I want to
ensure that you read this mail as a part of the "bigger picture", and not
blindly implement it.

Give a man a fish, and he says "Yech!!".  Teach him to fish, and he spends
$500 on sporting equipment.  Either way, he goes hungary.
