dual boot


Hi there,
I would like to reinstall WinME and install Redhat 9 on a separate partition.

What is the easiest way to do that?

Also how does this dual boot thing work?

Thanks

First, partition your drive(s) as desired, then install the crash-prone, other OS ignoring popular OS, then install Linux.

Re-install ME as you would do ordinarily - making sure you leave some free unpartitioned space at the end of your drive for Red Hat to go on.

Then simply, set your BIOS to boot from the cd-rom drive and boot from your 1st - RH9 CD

Let Red hat install itself automatically in the free space.

Install either GRUB or LILO to the MBR.

Make a boot floppy near the end of the Red Hat install process.

Any problems - re-post.
