That depends on how they're installed. If 98 and NT are on separate
primary partitions (that is, each thinks it's on C:, but the C:
partition seen from Win98 is not the same as the C: seen in WinNT), then
you just need to create appropriate /etc/lilo.conf entries to boot each
partition. If the two versions of Windows share a C: partition (which is
the most likely way the two are installed if you installed them using
the native Windows tools), then AFAIK LILO can't do it alone; you must
rely on NT's OS Loader or some other tool as a secondary boot loader.
