I have a question to those who dual boot Linux and Windows XP>
Currently I have XP Pro on hd0 and Fedora core1 on hd1 using GRUB as the boot manager. I was told by many if I upgrade to Fedora Core2 that XP wouldnt boot. Some say its a problem with Fedora and others say its a problem with Kernel 2.6. If it is a problem with Fedora can I install Suse or another distro in place of Fedora without any problems?
It's an issue with the 2.6 kernel (not just Fedora), and it kicks in on a new install when it reads and writes the partition table differently from the way Windows does, and only in some situations. If you are upgrading your FC1, I don't think you will be needing the FC2 install to touch your partition table at all, so you should have no problems. I upgraded from FC1 to FC2, and now to FC3 Test1, with no problems.
Okay, total linux newb here with this problem. I know I have to type in that sfdisk command, but when I do it, it says "sfdisk: command not found". So, please have mercy on a poor linux newb and help me figure out where to get this.
Thanks for any help,
