First, thanks everybody for your answers. I assumed that I had to keep the
NT boot manager there, but you guys proved that wrong. So, please let me
hash thru what I plan to do and tell me if you see any holes.

Current system has NT on C: with the NT boot manager.

1. Install Linux on D:   /dev/hdb

2. Install LILO on C:'s MBR - or /dev/hda

3. Set up LILO to :
   boot NT from /dev/hda -    run NTLDR??????
   boot Linux from /dev/hdb

Sound OK?

Thanks again,

Dan Murphy
