Windows NT bootloader question

I finally did it. I got all 3 OS's (Win ME XP and RH 8) to finally install on the same HD. How would I go about using the NT bootloader to recognize linux and making it an option on startup? I just heard GRUB and LILO was not good when using an NT type OS. Any help is appreciated and thanks for any help.
