Short answer: yes.
Longer answer: If you wish to use lilo or grub install linux (or at least
lilo/grub) last. Alternatively you can use nt's bootloader to boot
linux, but it takes a bit more work.
I'm gonna take this opportunity to plug grub
(http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/grub.html). While still in
alpha/beta?, it's sooo customisable, though it's a bit of a pain to
get installed. At present it takes quite a bit of reading to get up
and running, but if you're trying to do anything awkward with
partitions then it's probably worth it.
