A few weeks ago I had to install win2k on my box
because of some client program not available on
gnu/linux. There was no problem. After win2k
installation I booted one of my gnu/linux cds and
reinstalled grub in the mbr.
When I boot win2k I just follow the grub example:
Any stories about windows needing control over your
mbr in order to work is a myth. As long as you can
boot any kind of gnu/linux, you're on safe ground.
