Assuming using the NTDLR then LILO:
(ntloader on MBR, pointing to lilo in first sector of ext2 partition)
use dd to get a copy of the MBR.
have a linux boot/rescue disk handy
install 98 fine.
boot with the linux boot disk, and use dd to rewrite the mbr.
edit boot.ini to add the following
and that should do the trick there
I use lilo as main boot manager, and point to win2k bootloader
other = /dev/hda1
label = win
this give the focus to ntldr, which I can then choose win2k or win98
If you dd out the mbr of a functional lilo install to a file accessible by
the ntldr, you can boot linux from the nt/2k bootloader.
Moral of story: keep copies of mbrs after each os install, with a linux
rescue disk to give access to dd, and the individual files
I use Linux because it's better than Windows. Should Windows become better
than Linux, I'll use Linux for political reasons. :)
