Hi!

I just installed VectorLinux 5.9 Gold with Lilo in the boot partition instead of MBR.

Now I have the issue of dual booting my system. I.e. I don't know how to configure my boot.ini (WinXP).

This site: http://jaeger.morpheus.net/linux/ntldr.php suggested to copy the "bootsect.lnx" file on C: and then configure boot.ini in the way described on the page. This would be no problem, I guess, if only I could find that file.

Is there any other option? I cannot start Vector untill then.

Thank you for taking your time in advance!
