I want to install me linux OS after the first 8 GB of partition.
My hard disk size is 20 GB. Suppose I have 4 GB FAT32 partition first where win98 is installed....then next 4 GB is NTFS and windows 2000 server is installed. My question is can I install linux after that 8 GB beginning partition of my HD. Say I want to install it at next 6 GB. One I installed ..but after rebooting the PC when the linux installation is complete it always gives me..


But LILO is not coming...

What distribution and version are you installing? It appears it might be installing an older version of Lilo that had problems reading past the 1024 cylinder... etc.
