I have windows 2k on the master hd and red hat 9.0 on the slave hd. I use a linux boot disk to boot up from the floppy drive.
Recently, the red hat updater says that I have an updated kernel version that I should try to boot to. How do I do this?
I don't want to install any bootloader onto the windows master hd. I want to either boot from the linux hd or use the boot disk.
When I use the boot disk, it says that I can enter "linux <parameters>" What kind of parameters can I enter there? I tried typing the latest kernel version, but i guess that's not the correct parameters.
On the other hand, I tried configuring the bios to boot from the slave drive. The only thing that shows up is "GRUB". I don't see a ">" prompt at all. Should I wait a while for this prompt to show up?
Anyways, my goal is to boot into the latest kernel without touching anything from the master hd. Second, I want to create a boot disk that would use the latest kernel. How do I do this?
Your help is much appreciated!
