Linux+NT Loader

I have read Linux+NT HOWTO but I do not understand quite well.

It said in part 5 that I have to boot from diskette until the NT part
is fixed. Then, use dd command.

I do not know how to boot from disk. So, I used boot disk and then at
boot: prompt, I typed "rescue"

Next, at # prompt, I typed:

dd if=/dev/hdb5 of=/bootsect.lnx bs=512 count=1
(hdb5 is the partition for my root directory)

It didn't work. It said dd command is not found.

So, I tried using the easy step using bootpart program.
This didn't work as well. I can choose "Linux" at NT boot loader,
but I got an error message and the system was hung up.

The error that I got is:

TRAP 0000000E ==================== PAGE FAULT ====================

*at linear addr 010000

tr = 0028 cr0 = 80000011 ....

I installed LILO in the first sector of my root partition and not in Master Boot Record
Is this correct??

I'm not sure what you've done, but this is the method I always use to install an NT/linux dual boot:

Install NT first, partition the disk in the setup process to leave yourself room for linux (usually 50/50). Make an emergency repair disk just in case...

Install linux, putting lilo in the master boot record, and adding NT to the list of bootable partitions as part of the setup or manually.

Reboot and lilo should run first. If you select NT, the NT boot loader should appear and runs as normal.

If this doesn't work, you can always get NT back by using you emergency repair disk. You can kill lilo (but lose access to linux) with FDISK /MBR from a bootable dos floppy.

I've never managed to install linux first, then NT. The NT setup program seems to get confused.

Give it a go, it's never gone wrong for me doing it this way.
