I used to run OS/2 Warp 3 and, if I recall correctly, OS/2 creates a 2MB
boot partition.  The OS/2 boot loader is great.  I think you may have to begin
running everything from that.  Just point the OS/2 boot loader at NT's boot
loader, which in turn points to Win95 and dos, etc..  Maybe you'll even be able
to get OS/2 to boot Linux! hehe
