using lilo instead od win2000's boot.ini

hey guys, i was using an older copy of mdk with lio, and right now i have 98se and 2000 on my sys. i dont really like 2000's little "bootup and ask u what u want with no graphics at all" thing. I was wondering if i could use lilo instead of having boot.ini pop up, and if so, how do i do this?

I dont' think lilo compiles on win32. If you are attempting to just use windows os's, system commander does that quite well. It thoretically should be possible to compile the C code and install it from a floppy, but I'm afraid I'm not familiar with doing that myself. You could partition off 50 megs or so and install a small linux distro along with windows, but that's up to you.
