had to reinstall RH 9


I had to reinstall redhat 9 cause i was outta disk space on my 4 gigger so im making another partition on my 40 gigger hd. But im installing it after xp. I think i heard that you have to install it before xp or it wont dual boot...... hmm... can i add it to my boot.ini file?

Quote:
[boot loader]
timeout=5
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /KERNEL=kernel1.exe
does anyone know if i can add a line to it? and if so, what is it?

ill have a 30 gig partition with xp and a 10 gig at the end of my drive.. is that ok?

You can install it after XP, and it will dual boot just fine. Grub will auto-configure itself to give you an XP boot option. But XP is just taking up space, wipe it off your HDD

I remember pengaol. When it first came out it had alot of potential. But for some reason out of the blue, the author stoped support for it. I guess he got some shit from AOL. I think I can remember how to use it. What do you need help with? The docs are pretty clear.
