Re: vindO's und Linux
Yes dual booting can be done quite easily.
You will want Win* to be the first OS on the disk, then partition with something like Partition Magic. Once your partitions are set up, stick you Linux CD in the drive and reboot. To get a working Boot manager you have two choices.
a) Intsall LILO to the MBR when asked where you want it to go.
This will make Windows ( /dev/hda1) and Linux (/dev/hda2) options to boot from the LILO bot menu.
b) As long as you are *not* running a Windows install with NTFS files system, you can use Boot Magic (part of partition magic install). Once Linux is installed, and LILO is installed on the / or /boot partition, you can reboot into Windows ( via Boot Magic), and select Linux as a bootable partition.
// if you choose this option you will need to have boot magic installed before you attempt to install Linux.
Know this..., you may not by thyself in pride claim the Mantle of Wizardry; that way lies only Bogosity without End.
Rather must you Become, and Become, and Become, until Hackers respect thy Power, and other Wizards hail thee as a Brother or Sister in Wisdom, and you wake up and realize that the Mantle hath lain unknown upon thy Shoulders since you knew not when.
