I've got a system which had Win NT 4.0 SP 4 installed on it originally. The NT system is installed on the first partition of an 18gb scsi disk.. in unix terms /dev/sda1
the partition is 2gb..
I have successfully installed Redhat Linux 5.2 on /dev/sda3, kind of anyway.. ie. the system will boot successfully and be totally accessible, but only from a Linux floppy boot disk which is prepared during the setup phase..
LILO does not install correctly during that setup phase.. nor can I install LILO after the fact on either partition.. ie. not on the Linux root partition, nor in the Master Boot Record (which is owned by NT)..
I have modified the NT BootLoader as described in the mini-howto file on setting up dual boot NT/Linux systems but it still forces me to put in the boot floppy diskette in drive a to boot..
I've extracted the bootsect.lnx file form the floppy and moved it to my NT boot partition as well to no avail.. it spits out a string of "80 80 80 80" characters until I put the boot diskette in.. (my NT bootloader maps to C:\BOOTSECT.LNX for Linux..)
