Triple Boot


I'm trying to get a triple boot using Win98se(Fat32), WinXP Pro(NTFS) and Slackware 8.0(Ext2) formats. During the install and when I get to the part were it recognize W98 and then it say it found a OS2 partition(HTFS I think). Is it seeing the NTFS partition as the OS2 partition and do I tell it to set it up for triple booting?

Right now I'm booting Slack with a Lilo boot disk, but do want to set up a triple boot from HD!

Thnx.

Gidday mate...


Easy, just install Lilo to your MBR, and add both winDOHs partitions to
lilo.conf. (hope MS didn't build any nasty traps into eXPeriment... NiceTry
was well-behaved (as good as it gets for an MS product) and would let Lilo boot it :})

Cheers,
Tink

Thanks for the reply. I finally got my triple boot working and used the first 512 bytes of the Bootsect file to get it going.
