Any hdd/partition layout details available? Where did you install LILO? What
type of crash? When exactly?
Comment 2 Ved Singh 2001-06-19 01:24:01 EDT
I have 20 GB HDD.
/dev/hda1 - (2.1GB) FAT partition where NT is installed.
/dev/hda2 - (8 GB) FAT partition
Rest around 9 GB remain unpartitioned.  I installed Linux on this unpartitioned space. Created following partitions - /, /boot, /home,/usr,/usr/local, /var, 
At the LILO configuration step - chose Skip LILO configuration and created a boot diskette.
After that , I am able to boot through the boot floppy.
Now , when I boot without floppy, the machine boots trhough NT and when it reaches, blue screen of OS loading, it crashes there.

I can't explain why this would happen.  The installer doesn't write anything at
all to the FAT partitions.  I haven't seen this happen before, and we test
dual-booting pretty regularly.

Actually, the problem was bacause of NT service packs. You need to have at 
least service pack 3. Thank you all for your efforts.
