Ok I'm a newb :newb: to comps and need some help on "dual booting" (i think that's the right term).
Currently On HD "C" (IDE 0) I am running Win Xp (prof).
On HD "F" (IDE 1) I am running linux mandrake 8.1
(I have a amd athalon 1ghz w/ 133 256, elite group k7s5a MB)
Right now the only way i now how to switch from windows to linux is swithcing the boot sequence in bios.
I was told that i can simoltanously (how do you spell that??) run win and linux using a program called VMware. So I now have vmWare and have the following problem:
I start VMware (in windows) and it asks me what I want my guest OS to be.....I select Linux and then it asks where this OS can be found. So I try to "browse" for drive F where Linux is located and it is not an option.
Since I've installed Linux on drive F when I got to my computer in windows it doesn't even show drive F as being on my computer anymore....the same story for linux (when i'm in linux it doesn't show a drive C which is where my windows is).
I've heard that some "adjusting" needs to be done in order for these to programs to be able to "view each other"
So any help on getting VMware working would be great!!
If more info is needed let me know and I'll post it....if this is a stupid question I appologize!!
P.s. this is great!! LMAO :smash:
