Question Newto Linux How do I multiBoot Win2kPro/Adv. Server/WinMe/XP/Linux ?

I'm new to Linux but I do have a basic background in using Unix and Solaris. But not with installation.

First of all my systems specs:
Pent III 800Mhz
768 MB memory (64MB allocated to video card)
2(20Gb HD Maxtor)
C: drive has WinME/Win2k_Pro
1(60Gb HD Maxtor)
E: Win_XP and Advance Server
one twenty gig partition which is empty the other partions on this drive just have the OS files on its own partitions for test purposes
1(7Gb HD)
empty - removable HD but not connected
DVD player

How do I install linux to multiboot with the other OS's?

To my understanding the regular boot.ini file with ntldr, Win_2k Pro.

By the way I also would like to test and install Unix system after I install linux. Is there a difference in installation between Linux and Unix?

Do a google search for "windows 2000 linux dual boot" and you will find a ton of articles that tell you how to add linux to the win 2k boot loader menu.

That is if your using the boot loader? Since you didn't respond to that reply earlier, we don't know....
