Boot dilemma

I have an 80 GB HDD. Partitioned like: 2 GB Windows98, 4GB Windows2003Server (FAT32), 10GB Windows XP(FAT32), FC3 (12GB), 20GB(FAT32), 15GB(FAT32), 5GB(NTFS)

Anytime I start my PC, it asks for from which OS to boot.

I want to make the Win2003 partition NTFS. But somewhere I have heard/read that if I make any of the OS partition NTFS, then it will cause some problems with the boot.ini file in which I have made an entry for linux and only MS OSs will work with it not linux.

Is that really so? Please give me a suggestion.

Changing the Win2003 to NTFS should not cause any problems with the boot.ini settings.
