# After you installed XP on /dev/hda1
# & Linux with lilo on /dev/hda2
# Replace /dev/hda2 if need be
Boot Linux & open terminal
mount /mnt/floppy
dd if=/dev/hda2 of=/mnt/floppy/boot.lnx bs=512 count=1
cp boot.lnx /mnt/floppy
umount /mnt/floppy
Boot XP
copy boot.lnx c:\
edit boot.ini
After multi(0)..., add a new line
