Install PC-BSD after Linux, on first of two drives
I've read a bit about this, but most howto's refer to installing on the PC-BSD with Linux on the same drive.
I have two SATA drives, and Slackware Linux is on my 2nd drive (sdb), and the first drive (sda) is currently empty. I'd like to install PC-BSD to the first drive.
Currently, I use Lilo, and it is installed in the Master Boot Record of sda - and I got a warning about this when reconfiguring Lilo in slackware... something about the bootloader being on a different drive.
I had installed PC-BSD once already to sda, and I don't recall seeing any boot options during install. But I was given a text menu after the install - F1) PC-BSD, F5) Linux. After pressing F5 for Linux (Slackware on sdb), nothing happens... the cursor just blinks.
Am I correct in thinking that I should re-configure Lilo in the root of sdb instead of the MBR - and then PC-BSD's bootloader will work? I'm not sure if sdb's root is bootable - how can I check this and set it bootable if it isn't already?
Many thanks in advance!
