Bootpart and multiboot partitions question

	Hi,

it should be very simple. Instruct your LILO in Debian distro
to install itself on pttion 4 (/dev/hda6) and in your LFS setup 
LILO to the pttion 6 (/dev/hda8) - if I count correctly.
Than copy bootsectors from 4 and 6 where your ntldr is and 
modify boot.ini
Hope it helps. May be I missunderstand your question ...
