I have to heartily concur with Harry here. NT and Linux will play VERY
nice together. Ive had more luck with NT-first-then-Linux installs, while
a friend of mine swears by Linux-first-then-Nt installs.
syscom is an incredible tool, if you can put your hands on it. I have an

the multiboot howto is pretty extensive.
