I am running Xandros on a box with a 60GB Hd. The OS came pre-installed and
apart from 1 re-install (retaining Root and Home dirs) I haven't (dared to) fished
about much yet. On trying to install Suse 9.1, Yast failed to recognise my existing OS.
It also gave me the option to re-size Hda, but wouldn't let the newly created
partition be / . Does it need to be in order to dual boot? Or? or? Or? or?
As i'm a relative newbie i aborted.
If anybody can give me any advice about achieving this, or especially a/the
best way to go about it (starting with, progressing to), or give me pointers to
any tutorials, howtos, or books which might be useful, I'd be eternally grateful.
(There seem to be thousands of articles on Moneysoft dual boots, but none
for linux/linux ones
Also TFMs mention this phenomenon but never how to. Seems to be Guru territory )
Or is it time to bite the bullet and exterminate Xan and start afresh with Suse
and fresh partitioning?
Live cds have been tried,(DyneBolic coming out tops) but adding to them etc.
Also have looked at VMWare, but it only seems to like RedHat or Suse.
TIA for any tips or pointers,
