          Ntldr is Windows. Linux does not use ntldr. You cannot use the Windows bootloader to boot Linux. In fact Windows is dumb to Linux's existence. You cannot even read a Linux formatted drive from Windows without the help of a third party utility, so it should not be surprising. Fortunately, Linux is smarter than Windows. It can boot Windows, Linux or any installed OS and read any kind of drive.

          Linux uses a bootloader called grub that gives you a menu that allows you to choose between installed OSes.

          The rule of thumb is to install Windows first and make sure it is working properly, then install Linux. Linux will overwrite the Windows bootloader and install its own bootloader(grub). Linux will become the default OS and will boot automatically if you press nothing. This can be changed so that Windows is the default OS.

            Actually, Windows can boot Linux. It's a lot more work to get it going
            than to do the reverse.

            However, I remember a rainy afternoon when my friend Dave and I trashed
            various systems getting it to work.

            I have a very dated howto about it--most of the info about getting
            Windows to boot Linux should still be accurate, though you would
            substitute grub for Lilo.

            What he said. :) It's far far less of a headache.

Linux will become the default OS and will boot automatically if you press nothing. This can be changed so that Windows is the default OS.
            >

            Again, what he said. :)
