Hey fellow listers, how's it going?  I've got a few questions about 
installing Linux on a second hard drive.
1.  I would like to install Debbian.  Should I go for the 3.0 release or is 
there a newer release out there?
2. When I get to the point where I'm gonna install lilo, do I want to 
install it on the MBR of the master HD?  To me this would make complete 
sense.  Other wise, how does the system know to look to the second HD, not 
the first where my windows 2000 installation is?
Last but not least 3.  What is the line I want to add to lilo.conf that 
will give me my Windows 2000 as a choice on the initial boot-up menu?  Any 
answers to these would be greatly appreciated, as I plan on doin' the 
install over the weekend and comin' back into the world of Linux.
