    Is there a way to edit Windows' boot.ini file to include a boot option for Linux?

    Copy your Linux boot sector:
    dd if=/dev/hda2 of=/mnt/floppy/linux.img bs=512 count=1

    Copy the bootsector image to the Windows side.

    Add an entry to boot.ini:
    c:\path\to\linux.img="Linux Rules!"
