I *think* you can use a win98 floppy, run fdisk /mbr, this will get you back
with a DOS bootsector, which NT is fine with.
Then boot onto a rescue cd, I use CD1 of SUSE or else I use the ilug BBC to
mount your linux partition, vi /etc/lilo.conf make sure its coschur,
and your sorted.
Cross your fingers...
Thanks in advance,
PS I do plan to RTFM too!
