    Question menu to switch between OS's

    In the computer I am building, I would like to have 4 operating systems (I know I can have 2...i dunno whether I can have 4 or not):

    Windows XP, Windows 98, Linux, and MSDOS 6.2

    Any suggestions on a program to get that would let me switch between the OS's?

    I know there is automenu, but that is old and I dont think it works for any versions of Windows past Windows 3.1, plus I have never tried it with Linux.

    I have also heard of one called Lilo. Is it any good?

    What others are there?

    Lilo is a configurable graphical or text-based menu for dual booting. I use it, it works well.

    Only downside is you can't configure it from outside of a Linux environ, so you would only be able to make changes to your setup via Linux or cygwin.

    Lilo is good, as mentioned above. If you are looking for something else Boot Magic will do. Obviously if you use Lilo you won't have to shell out 50 bucks!
