How do I change the default splash screen for Red Hat 9.0?? Triple boot ques. also.
Hi, I'm new to Linux (2 months so far. .) and I was wondering if there was a way to change the default splash screen to basically any other image I choose.
Another question I have is a little more complicated. Today I attempted to triple boot Win XP Pro, Slackware 9.1, and Red Hat 9.0. The problem was that after all the installations were completed, Slackware could not be booted up from the boot menu. This is how I did it:
o Installed Win XP Pro first, then Slackware, then Red Hat.
o Made a swap file and / partition for Slackware. Used Lilo as bootloader. I dont know where it was installed, used the default, MBR maybe?
o For RedHat I used GRUB and installed it in the MBR because I want RedHat to handle the boot menu.
My first hint of a problem was when Slackware did not appear on the list of bootable partitions. Red Hat Linux appeared and DOS (which I renamed to Win XP Pro) appeared but Slackware did not, so I manually added /dev/hda3 (the / partition I had earlier created for Slackware) to the list.
After installation was complete I restarted and the RedHat boot menu appeared to my delight. Linux worked, check that off. Restarted. Choose Win XP from the menu this time, loaded up beautifully. All good so far. Restarted, attempted to load Slackware, nope wasn't happening. Missing some crap that I can't remember or something wasn't found.
My only guess would be that I would have to install Slackware's Lilo into it's own boot sector because installing RedHat's GRUB would override it at the MBR??? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
