Possible to do both Linspire and FC4 on same box?


I'm using Fedora right now, and I'd like family to make the easiest possible migration from windows to linux.

Therefore my question: After you've done a complete Fedora 4 install on a HD, is it possible to install Linspire on the same box, as well, without repartitioning? The HD is 10 Gig large.

You will have to free up some space on your harddrive to make room for Linspire.

That's it. If you don't want to partition the details yourself just let the setup make the default table.

I bet you don't have much space left on the HD. You would have to repartition the hard drive if you don't have any free/unpartitioned space left on your HD.
