It's on my main machine and my Compaq laptop now. Just got opera working on the laptop and am still vacillating between LILO and Ranish boot manager. Only thing I dont like about Ranish is the use of partition numbers instead of naming boot os like LILO. With three machines it's a pain to try to remember which partition has what on it.
I was hoping someone could tell me how the mswin diddles the boot record on startup. OH well.
