Right, but finding a proper BootManager might be a bit of a challenge.

Many bootmanager need to be installed in a FAT partition (FAT32 might be OK)
so that would be the W98 one. Some install into the MBR area only, and some
require a small primary partition of their own ...

It does not have to do much, just let you select from a menu and set the
choosen partition as ACTIVE ...
