bios boot instead of boot manager?
If I hit F8 when booting up, I can choose to boot from my hard drive, my cd, or anything else that is bootable on my system.
If I have 2 (bootable?) partitions, 1 with WIN 98 SE, the other with linux (I don't know, maybe Peanut or Thiz), can I install linux without a boot manager? That is, can I use the bios boot instead of a boot manager.
If the answer is no, will boot managers (in general) mess with my hardware configurations in WIN 98 SE? My built-in ethernet port and my wireless network thingy don't like each other (sometimes I'd rather not go wireless). So, when WIN is booting, I get a menu asking me which hardware configuration I want to use.
I haven't done the partition thing, but I'm assuming that one partition will be C: and the other will be D:. If possible, I'd rather choose which one to boot with the bios option.
