LXer: A triple-boot system with GRUB: Debian GNU/Linux "Lenny", FreeDOS 1.0, and Wind

Published at LXer:

This last Christmas, I refurbished and installed computers for two of my children. As we still have a pile of old games in a drawer, I wanted to provide multi-boot systems. This was much easier and more satisfying than the last time I set up a Linux/Windows dual boot system (with LOADLIN.EXE, which I can’t really recommend today). I also wanted to test out the current state of FreeDOS (a GNU GPL-licensed operating system that emulates parts of MS-DOS 3.3 and MS-DOS 6.0). I did try installing ReactOS 0.3.7 instead of Windows on one of the systems, but I ran into installation problems I couldn’t work around (a topic for a later column, perhaps), owing no doubt to the immaturity of the (“alpha”) software. Read the full story at Freesoftware Magazine.
