I am thinking about setting up a triple boot on my computer.
I have a 40 Gig HD, This is how I plan to split up the drive:
C drive - 10 Gig/Fat32
D drive - 10 Gig/NTFS
E drive - 20 Gig/Fat32
I hope to put windows 98se and Red Hat 7.2 on C drive and windows 2000 on D drive.
Does anyone see a problem with this? I plan to use Lilo as the boot loader and I read something about Lilo not being able to load an OS that is beyond the 1024 cylinder.
Any tips/help/comments are appreciated.
With Red Hat 7.2, the default boot loader is now GRUB instead of LILO. GRUB automatically detects if LBA (Logical Block Address) mode is available for your hard drive. If it is, GRUB can access the whole disk.
Here's a link that should be able to help you: http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/mini/M...h-GRUB-2.html. It talks about having a machine boot into DOS, Win98, Win2K, and Linux. This is almost exactly what you're asking about.
