MBR and other irritating things

Well, I have learned something recently. Well, specifically yesterday I learned it. If you install Mandrake Linux 9.1 be careful since it likes to put LILO in the MBR. I had to learn the way to restore the Windows 2000 MBR so I would be able to boot Windows. I have Windows 2000 set up exactly the way I want to with all the software installed and i was at least irritated when Mandrake killed it like that. All I wanted to do was have the NT bootloader boot Linux also. It is easy in Redhat and Debian Linux but a pain to specifically do things in Mandrake.
