Well I didnt get too far with my Red Hat 9 install before hitting a brick wall.
I have two drives on my system, the first is a 40gb drive on which I have my Windows install, and the second HDD is 100gb. Thats where Im installing the Linux OS.
I get to the partitioning, and the first partition I want to install is the root (/). A resource here suggested I install the following partitions:
/ (root) 2GB root to install everything else under
/boot 100MB for the kernal etc
/usr 7GB programs, applications area
/home 20GB User files and stuff
So I go to the manual partition, and click NEW to define a new partition and select / (Boot). I then type in 2000 as the #mb fixed size for the partition.
I get this message:
"Warning: Boot parition / may not meet booting constraints for your architecture. Creation of a boot disk iis highly encouraged"
Is this because I am installing on the second HDD of my system? If so, thats ok, because I intend to boot Linux from a disk anyway because GRUB cant support dual boot win WinXP on the primary HDD anyway.
Should I be worried about this?
