Sorry, I should have said that if you're planning on dual-booting safely
with a Windows 98 system, then you should put the Linux root partition
a primary partition and install LILO there rather than in the MBR, which
is subject to being messed with.
As far as I know you cannot do this is your primary is in an extended
partition, because there's no block for LILO to fit in... correct?
