Linux + Windows = Windows LAG


Hiyas

I have set up

on /dev/hda Windows 2000 on a NTFS single partition, this works fine by itself...

on /dev/hdb1 a /boot for gentoo
on /dev/hdb2 a swap for gentoo
on /dev/hdb3 gentoos /

When running gentoo everything is fine...when in windows it will not open My Computer without crashing, and will not open anything to do with IDE channels...

Does anyone else have this problem?

Windows is designed to crash and be slow

yes, I know that but when it was running on it own it was alright...I need to use Windows for my GCSE coursework at School because Access does not run on Linux and I am not allowed to use SQL/PHP

I don't run Gentoo, but I do have a dual boot win WXP, and don't have a similar problem. Sounds like a(nother) Winbloze bug to me. I don't use XP, but I am the admin and have no complaints from my wife about anything crashing, and I haven't had to fix anything for quite a while in XP, so I am assuming either she got smart and started signing in under her Linux account, or XP just hasn't crashed in quite a while.

So anyway, short answer to your question:

NOPE

MasterC do you have it on two hard drives? and if so is it Linux master or Windows master? I may be forced to try a different version of Windows...

I think this is a problem with LILO (if you're using it). My lilo is really crap and when I boot winbloze, It "copy" each partition (I have C, D is the same disk, I have E, F is the same disk etc...) so Win is very slow and can't stay up for long without crashing

Try to boot windoze alone without LILO.

Try to use XP boot manager instead of Lilo. XP does not like it.

Well personally I have one machine with a dual boot, Slackware 8.0 and Win2K. Both run exceptionally fine with no problems. Most likely its not a problem with Grub or Lilo, that only boots your system, it shouldn't affect it in no way on performance. It could have been win2k trying to detect the second hard drive or the such..
