Right, heres the deal. I have (had) win 2k running nicely and everything, and decided to put RedHat 6.0 on here aswell for a dual boot (6.0 as its the only version I had at the time, and over a 56k modem it would take 70 hours to download 7.2, anyway...), when using disk druid I came accross the issue of the master boot record "being too big"?!? I did a little looking around in a manual, and found that the problem was probably down to me having NTFS. So I did some copying, formatted my partitions and ended up with 3 FAT32 partitions. At the moment C: is blank (intended for Linux, though I'd have preffered G
D: is my junk drive where I stick everything, E: F: are CD-ROMS, and G: has Win 2K (REINSTALED I have to add, stupid mickey mouse OS won't let you do anything to fix things). So what I want to do now is Get Linux up and running along with Win 2K.
The MBR at the moment insists that there is 2 OS's (Win 2K and Win 2K)! Is it easier to fix this in Linux or Win2K? Can anyone tell me which is easiest?
For a dual boot, would Lilo kick off Win2K OK?
Would I be better off cutting my losses, fdisking the lot, installing Linux THEN Win2K? Or should I stick with Win 2K the way it is and put Linux (RedHat 7.1) on afterwards?
