I've recently thrown out my old P2 that was acting as a server after a script went bananas and was left in an eternal loop for 14 hours before the CPU died. Anyway, I now have a 10 gig disc i wanted to add to my system, and use to try out some new distrost. My problem is i know squat about bootloaders etc. SO:
- How can i install/run a distro on, say hdb or hdc when i have a distro+win on hda? is it just "input the cd, boot up and choose hdb1 etc"?
- Would the disc need it's own swap partition or can it use the one i already have in hda5?
- How can i make the bootloader(i currently use lilo) work with 2 seperate discs to boot from?
Also tips on fun distros to play with would be appreciated! Already decided to give gentoo a go, but need more!(Don't tell me to try Mandriva or Fedora cause i will "kick you sqwa in the nuts!
