Hi I found this really good web page http://www.geocities.com/epark/linux...w2k-HOWTO.html
and it answered many of my questions. However, it said one thing I was hoping isn't true anymore:
"If you have multiple hard drives (disks), /boot must be on the same hard drive (probably the first hard drive) that has the Windows boot loader (NTLDR) on the MBR."
I was planning to install a linux distribution onto a second harddrive and not mess with the windows partition at all. Is there no way to both install LILO or GRUB on the Linux drive and use that to boot the windows partition on the other drive? Must LILO/GRUB in a boot sector be on the same drive as Windows? I can make the linux drive master and the windows drive slave if that would help...
thanks for the advice!
