    Not in exactly this combination, but I've been having both OSs in
    multiple boot setups. Any specific question?

    Shouldn't be too hard I guess.

    Use GRUB and boot them with the chain loader.

    that I should be aware of.

    Thanks Leslie....The Red Hat Grub for Windows is installed and boots
    w2k so, if there is not some odd thing about UNIX, I should not have a
    problem. This machine has enough physical memory to boot Xwindows.

    Regards

    Not that I know of: As I already explained some days ago to someone
    else (to the Italian guy): Minix doesn't touch other partitions
    without being told so explicitely. So you just load the Minix
    partition boot block with your first boot loader from the MBR (Grub
    preferably, but LILO will also work if the BIOS supports the disk
    size) and off you go.
