    the install of dual os

    running xp pro on an celeron processor 384 ram 20 gig hd

    making a blank 6 gig partition and want to install redhat

    i want xp to be default boot and can i use my belkinn wireless access to connect redhat to internet

    i think i make a startup disk to boot into redhat?? but a year or 2 ago it rewrote my mbr and i am clueless as to how to configure that

    as long as i can get back into xp i will spend the necessary time figurng out the rest, but its time to move from M$ and i now have the time to do this thanks for any help given and nice to be here, its been awhile!!!!!

    That shouldn't be a tough one RedHat Linux Gives you a option During installation, to install it into MBR or not. Check this out there are various alternatives to that . Boot Loader Installation it explains almost every thing about the Redhat Boot Loder.

    can i use my belkinn wireless access to connect redhat to internet
    yes you can access the internet through belkinn wireless access in linux

    time to move from M$ and i now have the time to do this
    RedHat was never my favuriote, who don't you give SuSE LINUX, Slackware Linux or OpenBSD a try.

    okay i figured out that redhat makes it own partition and once that was solved it went fine, but i cant, because i dont know how, to get it to "see" my wireless usb device..its hardware detector didnt do it and keeps trying the ethernet card which isnt used..so far so good though and help getting connected would be appreciated...i didnt do anything to install my wireless usb access device, its a belkin and upstairs is a 4 port router, i never made a network linking the 2 puters as it wasnt necessary, any help would be appreciated
