how to have windows NT + windows 95 + Linux?

Hi all,

I have windows 95 and windows NT installed in my computer. However, yesterday, when I install linux in my computer. The Windows NT can't boot up. I wonder if any one here can help me with this?

Thanks,
JOE

Hi,
Yes, I am using  Lilo to boot. My Hard disk has 4.3Gb. I first format in Dos. I put Windows95 and WindowsNT in C:\ drive. When I install linux, I do the fdisk in linux again. I delete the D:\ drive and then re-partition again in this drive. I create one partition for linux and another one for swap memory. In other word, I put all the linux stuff in D drive. However, when I boot to NT, it said I have a problem of :
     inaccessable_boot_devices

If you guys know how to fix this problem, just let me know. Thanks.

Joe

Strange, it sounds like a WinNT question instead of a linux question to me..
When you boot win95 do you ever pass the NT loader??
(And, if you do, how does the c:\boot.ini looks like?)

If you have repartionated your D: drive you have to install Windows NT
again since Windows NT must know that your drive configuration has
changed. You should install Linux first and afters this Windows NT and
Windows 95.

OH! NO!!!

First you hav to install win 95,, Otherwise win95 will destroy your boot-record....

I installed first win95 then NT then Linux and it works just fine.

If you install win 95 after linux you have to boot on a boot-root disk and re-install lilo....

I think that you can try to install a NT again over youre last NT installation...
