      Are you aware that a standard installation with Linux will
      install LILO onto the Master Boot record but that windows NT
      does not like any files (other than it's own) to be placed
      onto the MBR? Windows NT will get rid of LILO if it
      discovers it. This means that you have to make sure that
      you are trying to boot Linux from Loadlin or from a
      disk. Windows 95/95 do not have this trouble.
