W95 on secondary disk.

I have DOS, Linux and W95 spread across 2 IDE drives. DOS and Linux on primary and W95 on secondary. Linux s complete with boot manager called LILO that allows booting OS's on non-primary drive. W95 fails to boot under this scheme. Boot results in Explorer failing with General Protection Faults in GDI.exe among other failures. If I physically disconnect the primary drive, leaving only W95 drive, W95 boot is OK.

Is this a general problem with W95 on non-primary drive?
Is it a problem with Linux/LILO?

Thanks
Stick.

I run win95 from a secondary drive on 6 machines -- admittedly none with Linux on the primary drive.  I run Linux on a standalone machine.  With the correct editing as j2 commented, you should run without problems.
