One caution, NT wants to have /dev/hda1 and '98 wants to be the first
visible DOS partition (easy)
I use something similar to the following
/dev/hda2 Linux /boot
/dev/hda5 Linux /
/dev/hda6 Linux Swap
/dev/hda7 Linux /usr (/opt simlinked to /usr/opt)
/dev/hda8 Linux /home
Install '98 first, then *CHANGE THE PARTITION TYPE* to a non-DOS type,
install NT, reset the '98 partition type, install Linux, and setup LILO to
boot between OS's (keep a LILO bootdisk to multiboot as well - in case NT or
'98 decide to be "helpful") ...
