6. The Windows NT part of the work

Copy the file from the diskette to C:\\bootsect.lnx. I don't tell you how to do that.

What lilo.conf is for linux is c:\\boot.ini for Windows NT. Remove the, system- and the read-only-attribute before you can modify it with:

C:\attrib -s -r c:\boot.ini 

Now change the file boot.ini with an editor, notepad for example, as follows:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows NT Workstation ... 
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT="Windows NT Workstation ...
C:\BOOTSECT.LNX="Linux"

Only the last line has been added in this example. Restore the attributes after you have saved boot.ini with:

C:\attrib +s +r c:\boot.ini 

After a shutdown of your Windows NT and a restart your should see the following:

  OS Loader V4.00
 
  Please select the operating system to start:

  Windows NT Workstation Version 4.0
  Windows NT Workstation Version 4.0 [VGA mode]
  Linux

Select Linux and see

  LILO loading zImage ....
