I just got finished loading my laptop with a triple boot, WIN98, WIN2K and
Red Hat 8.0 setup.  I'll dig up the details as soon as I get home and send
them to you.  It wasn't too hard and WIN2K handles all the boot stuff after
a little tweaking.  The most important thing to remember is to have all the
installs within the first 8GB of space on the drive.  I have a 40GB drive
and made one 2GB partition for WIN98, one 3GB partition for Win2K, one 3GB
partition for Red Hat and two partitions from the remaining space to load
applications and keep data files.  After I figured out the 8GB limitation,
all went very smoothly.

Do you know if this tutorial covers a dual boot where Windows is on hda
and Linux is on hdb? I've run into this problem myself, and currently
have to boot Linux from a floppy, and Windows from the NT boot loader.
I've Googled & researched, and found people who made a dual boot work
with Linux on hda and Windows on hdb but not the other way around.
