Some people choose to have both Windows NT and Linux on the same system. Windows NT has its own
boot loader called NTLDR and Linux has LILO. Which should go on the MBR?The safest way is to install Windows NT first, and give it the MBR.
Then, when you install Linux, tell LILOto install on the Linux partition. Also set the Linux partition as the
active partition. When the system boots,LILO will be loaded, and if you want to boot Windows NT, then LILO can load the MBR with NTLDR in it.There is a mini HOWTO text covering this subject available at
"Windows Linux Tips: Linux and NT booting"
