Hello bmiller, welcome to LQ.org.
You've chosen a curious reply to an old thread
The NT Loader is a master boot record OS loader, as is grub so booting grub from the NT Loader was never intended I think. Instead, install GRUB onto a floppy in Linux as I suggested and then confirm that it boots NT. If it does (as it should), install it onto the HDD as given in this thread. As long as the Linux partitions label is Win95 Extended (if it's not, change it), then there will be no drive issues.
