On my last machine I had Windows 98, FreeBSD, BeOS, Linux and
Solaris 8^)

Make sure you put Windows 2000 on first - your bootblock will
get twatted otherwise.  I can't remember ever having problems
with the 1024 cylinder limit, maybe I was just lucky.  Doesn't
it only affect older BIOSes?

Hmm...I previously used the BeOS boot menu since it looks nice.
LILO should be up to the task though.
