Not able to mount linux using vmware:-( Too urgent, do help out friends!!!!
 
HI Folks,,,

shall explain my problem step by step! so that you all can understand!!

1. Out of 120gb hardisk, i created an 100mb in the first cylinder of the harddisk and installed the "symantec boot magic" for dual boot option after switching on the system.

2. Next 70gb is for windows and installed the same.

3. Rest were for "Linux" !! In which i created on 100mb for "/boot" loader files, then one 1gb for "swap" area and the rest of the memory for "/" mounting point.

4. After all, i installed the "VMWARE" in windows, and while selecting the mount of linux, i selected the respective linux portion, and did the other settings.

5. Once done with this, i powered on the machine in vmware, but it was saying "BTMAGIC" not able to find, install again..

6. Cant we not mount the linux via "vmware" which is installed in windows, as i had used "symantec boot magic" for mounting windows/linux??

Kindly help me out from this situation!!

Thanks in adv folks,

No, you can't ;)

PS:
One thing you *can* do is:

a) find (or download) a Linux install CD
<= for example: http://www.debian.org
... or ...
http://www.ubuntu.com
... or ...
buy this magazine and use the DVD: Linux Pro Magazine

b) Insert the CD in your drive

c) Reboot

d) Follow the prompts to install your Linux OS on your hard drive
