Okay, here's the situation:
Recently, I was overcome by the desire to play The Sims by Maxis - despite my efforts, It's just not worth the trouble to me to fuss around with wine/cedega/vmware to make the game work. Unfortunately I have already axed my Windows hard drive (/dev/hda) to explore other Linux variants, so I'm reduced to windows 98 off of an old cd thats been living underneath my computer desk since Clinton was in office.
As of now, LILO loads Vector off of /dev/hdb, but I'm afraid of windows taking over my MBR and forcing me to boot into w98 (on /dev/hda)
This is exactly the kind of problem that can be fixed with knoppix, but if anybody can think of a cleaner way to do this, it would be much appreciated.
