If you use VMWARE you can boot any O.S that you have in one other partition or hard disk. You can download it from www.wmware.com and install it in win2k.

Are you saying that you want to run both the operating systems
at the same time? If so, VMWare is great.
Otherwise, it's called dual booting and you can find lot of docs on
how to dualboot in this forum. Just search.

My question was not clear, so I clerify it. I want to boot linux from win2k boot loader. I don't mean I boot into win2k then boot linux from win2k. I find lots of doc on how to dual boot linux and win2k but both on the same hard drive. In my case they are located on different hard drive.
Thanks,

It's the same.
C:\BOOTSECT.LNX="Linux"
You just need to play with the dd part to get the right bootsector. Just the one you have in lilo.conf in the "boot" line.
