Using lilo's mapping facility does not attempt to fool Windows; it fools the BIOS. Linux Mandrake's installer generates a lilo.conf file similar to this one, actually in use on my system:
boot = /dev/hda map = /boot/map install = /boot/boot.b vga = normal default = linux read-only linear prompt timeout = 150 message = /boot/message image = /boot/vmlinuz label = linux root = /dev/hda14 image = /boot/vmlinuz.suse label = suse root = /dev/hda14 other = /dev/hdb1 label = dos table = /dev/hdb map-drive=0x80 to=0x81 map-drive=0x81 to=0x80 other = /dev/hda1 label = obsd table = /dev/hda other = /dev/hda2 label = sun table = /dev/hda other = /dev/hda3 label = fbsd table = /dev/hda
The Win98SE installation, BTW, is remarkably stable. I've been using it for about four months with only two BSOD's. Course, with four flavors of UNIX available, I really don't use Windows all that much.
