I am purchasing a P133 with 2.2 GB hard disk(Segate). I want to install Linux (Slackware), Win95 and WinNT on the same hard disk on different partitions. I did install Win95 and
WinNT on a same machine but not Linux. What would be the best order to install these OSs ? Which would be best OS loader, NT loader or LILO ?

I used lilo. I had 95 on hda1, NT on hda2 (ntfs) and linux on hdb1. lilo loads linux or dos (dos runs nt loader) and then i load nt or 95. May be there is a better solution, but with this one if i remove linux disk i just have to run fdisk /mbr.
You must install 95, NT and then linux (easy way).
good luck.

There is other way around. NT loader could be configured to load Win95, LINUX and even DOS, using BOOTPART. One can get it from http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/gvollant/bootpart.htm.
