Your problem is you have 3 boot loaders - one for NT, one for linux (lilo) and bootmanager for Partition Magic (if you installed it). If you currently have win95 and NT booting ok, I would just boot linux from a floppy and set up lilo in the superblock of your linux partition instead of the mbr. Then you can add an entry for booting linux in the NT loader. See the linux HOWTO's for information on this. There are two HOWTO's that address this (actually  I think they are listed under  the mini HOWTOs). Just do a search for linux HOWTOs and you should be able to find a nearby linux archive. Partition Magic has a listing of error messages in their help files so you should be able to look up the error 120.

If partition magic is giving you errors you might be in trouble...most likely you put too many dos partitions on a single hard disk without making extended partions/logical drives.  Partition magic comes with the IBM boot loader and I have set it up to boot all three operating systems in question.  It does however require lilo installed on the superblock of the linux partition
