Solaris 8 AND Windows NT4 workstation

BSIM asked

If I want to install windows NT and Solaris 8, which should I install first?
If I install Windows NT first, will the NT loader overwrite the Solaris loader?

Watch Question

        I would recommend that you install NT40 workstation first, and then the Solaris 8.  This is based on my experience with Solaris 7 x86 and NT40 workstation.  They both runs fine with that installation.
        Just follow the normail setup procedure, but remember that leave some space unpartitioned if you happens to have one HD.
        After everything is installed, you will be presented with the Solaris boot loader with a menu.  The NT will be displayed there along with your Solaris boot partition.

good luck,
