on whether you turn your system off a lot and whether you
want to always start loadlin's OS first before starting Linux.
Many of us start Linux once and leave it running until the
next time we need to upgrade the OS or hardware, so it doesn't
matter much, but if you were going to boot up into Linux every
morning, you probably wouldn't care to have to boot up another
In any case, it seems "cleaner" to use SOME kind of boot manager
(lilo, System Commander, NT's version (does it allow Linux to
work? - I don't know)). Suit yourself.
