I am having trouble setting up a Hewlett Packard XU Pentium Pro 150 with a 2.0 Gig scsi drive for a dual boot with Linux and win NT 3.5. I have tried both redhat 4.0 and a current version of slackware with the same bad results in both cases. Using Redhat I  was eventually able to boot from a floppy giving additional indformation about the system at the boot: prompt.  I know it is possible to boot both systems from the hard drive; however, my experience with both the OS's is somewhat limited.  Can you please tell me in detail how to install the OS's to support a dual boot from the hard drive without using a product such as system commander (using either Win NT's boot loader or lilo).   Thank You in Advance.

On the Slackware CD in /docs/mini directory there is a file Linux+WindowsNT that will give you detailed instructions. If you have an older version that doesn't include the instructions I can email to you.
