Re: By NT loader booting GRUB and Linux

To boot Linux out of the NT loader, do this:

dd if=/dev/hda1 of=/bootsect.lnx bs=512 count=1

where /dev/hda1 is whatever partition you installed grub to, perhaps
hda5 in your case?

Take the bootsect.lnx file you made, copy it to the C:\ on the NT

Add this at the bottom of your boot.ini:


This *should* work for NT, I did this under Win2k on a laptop I set up
for someone and
it works, I believe NT and 2k share the same bootloader style. (this was
also with LILO)

Do keep in mind that any time you modify your Linux boot sector (say a
new version of
GRUB, perhaps) you'll need to do this again.
