Linux Dual Boot... No Go.
Alright everyone, let me first give you some information. I'm running an old Dell Dimension XPS T600 system. 32MB video card, 256 RAM, 12GB primary, and 30GB secondary hard drive, DVD drive, and a burner.
Now, I've followed the instructions like a cookbook as to how to install RH Linux 6.1. I got to the part about the partitioning, and I left half the primary drive for RH, and half for Windows 98. Now, here's the funny thing. From what I gather, I dont think that my BIOS supports dual-booting! I downloaded the update from Dell, and that didnt correct the problem, so I deleted Linux and reinstalled Windows and tried it again, same problem. So, I'm lost. Any suggestions as to what I should do?
