How do i get a partition to boot???

ok i want to load a linux system on a partition of my computer...i had to use the ezdrive software to partition it..it is a 7.2 gig hard drive..on my drive f there are 753 megs..perfect for linux..the problem is is that drive f is a logical drive and i can't figure out how to make it boot to that drive..i have gotten partition it but that doesn't help me much..what i think i have to do is take some of the c(bootable) drive and put it on d drive then just partition the c drive to boot to linux or windows but i was wondering if anyone knew how to make my f drive bootable..email me at inmyshad0w@aol.com if you think you know..thanks a lot

As I recall, doesn't partiton it comes with another software call select it?  Select it will let you choose which partiton to boot from...  Anyway, there's another software call System Commander, it will do this job right...

System Commander doesn't work with the Ez-Drive software.  It sees it as a virus and after trying to load system commander i can't boot to anything except a disk.  Then i have to re-install ez-drive.
