Dual booting windows 2000 Professional with Fedora Core 3
I am trying to dual boot windows 2000 Pro with Fedora.
my windows drive is set as the primary master. My linux drive is setas the secondary master. Both OSes were preloaded in a different IDE configuration.
on my linux drive, the partition table is as follows:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
18932452 4418232 13552480 25% /
/dev/hdc1 118983 12056 100774 11% /boot
none 193060 0 193060 0% /dev/shm
-Thus my boot partition is /dev/hdc1
A website states to:
1. Run grub-install /dev/hdc1
2.edit /etc/grub.conf to include
title Windows 2000
3. Make a copy of the boot sector on a floppy:
if=/dev/hdc1 of=/mnt/floppy/linux.bin bs=512 count=1
4. Reboot to windows 2000 pro
5.copy linux.bin to the c:\
6. edit boot.ini to include
8. Then once you startup you will see the boot.ini then once you choose linux, it then will summon the grub menu.
someone please tell me if this is a valid way it sounds logical to me, im a newbie to linux
