How to add Linux
For Linux, you must install Lilo at the beginning of the Linux partition (as is the case with the OS/2 boot manager) and then add the Linux partition with BootPart:
When you install Linux or run liloconfig, select "Superblock of the root linux partition" as the location for Lilo. On my own Linux box, this added the line "boot=/dev/sdb4" into the file /etc/lilo.conf
If you want mount your NTFS partition under Linux, visit the NTFS for Linux page.
For more info about mutlibooting, you may take a look at http://www.bcpl.net/~dbryan/directboot.html or at a modified version. There is also a tutorial to use NT loader to boot into BeOs.
There are also several interesting HowTo articles on this subject. Look at NT OS Loader + Linux mini-HOWTO. There is also another howto here.
Microsoft has also several KB article about the boot process : Q102873 describes Boot.ini, Q289022 describe how modify Boot.ini, Q101787 describes the boot process itself.
Windows NT Magazine published an article named Mastering Multibooting Madness.
Article Q157992 and Q153762 describe booting with both Win9x and MS-Dos 6.22 with the NT Loader, the Sysinternals site also contains a page about Boot.ini options.
If you want to backup Long File names in a FAT partition under MSDOS, Duncan Murdoch's DOSLFNBK utility may prove useful. (you can visit his page here).
