Disk Druid question


Is there anyway to start disk druid AFTER the installation occurs or do you have to use fdisk to manipulate partitions? Also is it possible to add a message to the GRUB boot screen similiar to what you could do with LILO? Thanks all.

I never have tried to run disk druid after install. I just did locate druid and it didn't come up, so you would probably have to install it.

I like fdisk and find it easy to use. Some folks like cfdisk instead.

I'm not sure I understand your second question. Perhaps these will explain:

Installing a bootloader
Multiboot with GRUB Mini-HOWTO
Linux+Win9x+Grub HOWTO

I mean you can display a message at the LILO screen that says something like "This is the property of XYZ corporation. Any unathorized users will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law" or something similar and am wondering if you can do the same with GRUB.

Disk Druid is a program that is only used in the installation phase of Redhat, its not an actual program that is installed onto your system afterwards.
