I have one hard drive with Windows 95 and NT Workstation (dual boot). I'd like to add a second drive and install Linux (Redhat distribution) on it. Is there any trouble with the LILO boot manager since I heard that Windows NT doesn't often let manage its own boot manager.

Thanks

Yeah, it can be done and yes, it does require a special set up to use the NT loader to boot Linux. The process is documented in: http://howto.tucows.com/LDP/HOWTO/mini/Linux+NT-Loader.html.
