I have my laptop Arrangeed this Way:
hda1 --> windows 2000
hda3 --> WinXP
hda5 --> Slackware 9.1
I just wanted to try the Fedora core 2 since its a new release & exhibits the new 2.6 kernel
I installed Fedora Core 2 as under :
hda7 --> Fedora C2
hda8 -->FC Swap
all fine till this moment
I use the NT LOADER to Boot linux so for my slack i have the LILO installed on the ROOT of Linux Partition.
while installing the FEDORA CORE 2 i noticed iit uses GRUBas the Boot Loader & at the Grub installation point it DOES NOT give me an option at all to set it on my Root partition. so i just checked not to use any boot Loader & installed my FC2.
now i think i can Load my FC2 with the LILO from my Slack as well isnt it ??
i tried making an Entry in the Linux.conf
boot = /dev/hda5
message = /boot/boot_message.txt
timeout = 1200
# Override dangerous defaults that rewrite the partition table:
# Normal VGA console
vga = normal
other = /dev/hda1
label = DOS
table = /dev/hda
# DOS bootable partition config ends
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz-acpi-2.4.22
root = /dev/hda5
label = Linux
after Running Lilo once it does say me Added FEDORA but when i reboot i dont see any Entry for it at the LILO prompt.
I am a bit noob at playing with Linux. but i'd Appreciate Proper Guidence for how to Load my FC2.
I tried loading the FC with my slack Boootable & it does boot also but hangs after some time
Well for my prob i reinstalled my FC2 & this time i checked the option of Advanced config of boot Loader which i had missed away from my eye earlier & installed the Grub loader to my /root. So now i can Load FC2 with my NT Bootloader.
The Look & feel is nice & fast too. but still --- i think RH or FC will always be just a trial thing for Slackers :idea:
just wot i feel :P
