I had a dual boot system ie windows/Redhat 8 but I have just been given a new system with the following specs:
Pentium 4, 2.8 GHZ
512 MB DDR ram
ATI Radeon 9200 - 128MB video memory
SpeedTouch 330 Alcatel ADSL modem
Onboard RealTeak AC'(& Audio
I want to set up a dual boot on that one but from my own experience and the advice of some friends, I don't want to mess about with partitioning and stuff. I have therefore decided to add my old HD (60 GB) to my new system and install linux on that one.
I have actually added the aditional HD but from windows I can only see about 37Gb of my old HD. How do I get the rest of it back to make the total of 60 GB. I know its got something to do with partitioning.
Also this time I want to use Gentoo. Yeah I know the installation is not newbie freindly but from past experience I realise that those difficulties actually make you learn. I am willing to learn what is needed to get it installed although I may be starting from stage 2(just so i can brag
) or 3 . Hard ware wise am i likely to face any problems ?
Thanks for your anticipated help.
