Re: want three operating syatem

i did this is in a different manner,
i have win98, winNt and Linux on the same system.
Sanjeev's method is the most comprehensive method i have ever heard, looks
like he's mastered the art...
neway when i tried that i faced a problem of 1024 cylinders so i followed my
own method, here goes
use some utility to partition ur disk as 30Mb, 2GB, rest ne way u like..
(use partition manager or disk manager or something)
First install Win98 on first 2BG partition) , then winNT on the same
partition as Win98 (saves space so u wont have to bother about 1024 cylinder
then install linux and as sanjeev sayz, install Lilo on the first partition
and one more thing mount the /boot on the 30MB partition u created
earlier... and the rest of the stuff newhere u like....

get back in case of ne probs...
