If you're dual-booting, installing Linux (and LILO) will not get rid
of many (installed under DOS) boot-sector viruses. I speak from
experience I'd prefer to have avoided, but the experience was in the
long run invaluable. I'll never dual-boot again, in fact I'll boot
even my Linux-only systems from floppy most of the time.
