 PLEASE! Can someone explain to me how to setup RedHat 5.1 to be loaded from the NT Server 4.0 Loader.
 
 There is 1(one) hard Drive[6.4 Gb] partitioned in two drives;
 I already partitioned(formated) the first one[3.2Gb] using NTFS file system and the second one[3.2 Gb] is also partitioned(formatted) using NTFS. I plan to format the second one with "ext2" Linux file system from the "Disk Druid" and later install in the second partiotion RedHAt 5.1...
 
 Is it possible I can skip LILO installation and BOOT from the NT Server Loader by adding an entry at c:\boot.ini ???
 If YES please explain HOW in words(and not HOW-TO files -- they are too technical to be understood).
 
 I believe that there should be a solution ...
 
 Thank you all,
 E.V.

Well ok.. there is a way to use the Windows NT Boot loader, but i never tried it and i only got a how-to for it =)
The only thing i could think of is installing lilo on the linux partition, setting only one OS as chooseable and the delay to 0, put that partition in the Windows NT bootloader and let the things happen =)
