[RndTbl] Re: [TLUG]: Red Hat 7.3 Installation on a XP Box

Every time I install RH (any version) I need to regenerate MBR on my
hda. (Put Install floppy for Win95 in fd0/a: then fdisk /mbr)

I download the ISOs to hda (a Windows drive) and install Linux to hdb (a
Linux drive)

No fancy foot work on the bootup. Linux is floppy booted; Windows boots
from hda/c:

Actually I tried to dual boot but never could get it to work, putting down
the failure to the lame brained Compaq BIOS I have on my museum piece
box. But that's a blessing in disguise really. Linux can see hda, but
Windows can't see hdb/d: so I have a measure of protection there.


Please direct replies to the list. I never check Rogers Mail Boxes.
