Dual boot win98 and linux on two hard drives
My family have windows 98 on their primary master and I want to add a hard drive with linux on it, but not sure how the boot loaders will work.
I'm assuming I should:
Add the hard drive as primary slave (only one left), and boot linux on it.
Write lilo to the master boot record to boot:
...and it will work, but I don't know.
I have looked, but I don't fully understand the "table" option.
We can't back up, so it's important I know it will work or I am off to the guillotine.
I believe lilo backs up the loader it replaces to a /boot/*.b file, so this may not be a big risk, I just copy it back if something goes wrong.
I've got rescue disks for both, so I shouldn't have too much of a panic if the boot loaders don't work.
I've done my research, so if I'm right, please confirm that I haven't missed something!
