I have installed Windows NT and Linux in the same machine using different partition in HD.
But when I start the machine I don't see any option to start Linux. How can I do that?

Thanks in advance.

There are a few ways to do this, but probably the safest way is to follow the instructions in the NT bootloader HOWTO document:

Until you get the above working, you'll have to boot your machine using a linux boot floppy to get to your linux partition.
