quadruple boot!

Ok right now I have a dual boot system. Windows 2000 and Red Hat 7.1.

I have some extra disk space ~200MB. I want to make an MS-DOS 6.22 partition, and a Windows 98 (boot disk) partition.

What do I do to get the NT boot loader to allow me to boot into these 2 partitions?

that's a slightly more difficult solution than using lilo to boot both linux and the Win2k OS, as well as your seperate DOS partition. LILO is easily capable of doing that, but in order for windows to be able to, I've seen an article that runs you through stripping the boot sector off of a Linux boot disk and copying it to your C: drive, then updating a pointer in boot.ini for it. I can't remember where the article is.

This thread tells you how to do it (there was something else wrong here though).
