Hi. Just ditched Redhat for Slack which I have now successfully booted into X (windowmaker) and even got online after having it autodetect my ethernet DHCP.
I have a 30 gig HDD split like this...
hda1 win98 22gigs or so
hda2 swap 128mb
hda3 root 5.5gigs or so
I can boot into slack easily enuf using lilo but can't boot into Win98. I move the highlight to DOS and get >
invalid system disk.... or something similiar
Luckily this is on an extra HDD I had lying round so I havent lost anything I had saved in Windows since I fresh installed windows and then slack on this extra drive. Just am wondering why it won't boot into the windows partition.
Basically what I did was using windows fdisk I partitioned my 30 gig into 2 parts. 25gigs for Win98 on first partition and 5 gigs for slack on 2nd partition.
Then I installed windows to the first partition and then installed slack on the second (5gig) partition using linux's fdisk to setup a 128 mb swap (hda2) and then the rest of the 5gigs root (hda3)
I had lilo installed in the MBR of the drive. It said this was potentially dangerous during the slack install and could have been installed in some super 'blah' (can't remember the name).
Did I do something wrong here?
want to be able to dual boot into either win98 or slack
