After reading around a bit on dual booting Windows XP/2000/NT with Slackware, I noticed something.
There is a lot of How To's on dual booting with LILO and also with making a second boot choice in the NT boot loader to load Linux.
My question is this:
Is one way better than the other?
Is it just as easy to do both? (it seems like it's easyer to just use LILO)
Also, it would seem that if you're going to use Linux and you eventually may "blow away" your Windows OS, that you would want to use LILO or GRUB instead of the NT boot loader.
I ask this because I am about to install Slack 9.1 onto a laptop with Windows XP already installed. I have already made space for Slack....but I wonder...which way is better/correct?
I personally think I should just install Slack and tell it to put LILO into the MBR and then give myself the option within LILO to load WINXP. That seems like the best way to me
Sorry.....didn't mean to be so long winded.
