Lycoris and RH 7.2 on same partition?

I set up three DOS partitions in preparation for Linux. One has 98SE, the second is all files, and third was for Linux.

I installed Red Hat 7.2 on the third using ext3 partitioning.

Can I now install Lycoris on that same partition?

Also, how I can browse the files in my DOS partitions from Linux? Since I have that Files partition, that is where my pics, docs, movies and so forth are located.

Thanks again ya'll.

No you can't install Lycoris sharing the same partition as RH. They usually can share the same swap space though.

You can however browse your files from linux on a windows partition.

Just mount the drive or partition they reside on and whala.. don't know how, browse the forums here, that question is asked a million times. Should be plenty of info on it for you. Got any more questions about it reply back if ya want.

To mount the 'files' partition, as su mkdir /files
mount -t vfat /dev/hda2 /files (or t- dos for fat16)

Assuming we got the file system type and partition correct /files now has the contents of the second partition. Add an entry in /etc/fstab for it, the syntax is pretty straight forward. See man fstab for the exact options. You'll want to fix the permissions on /files (the mount point) to give yourself or disk rw as the group. Or use suid in fstab, but that gives EVERYONE rw.

Two Linux installs on the same partition... I wouldn't do that if I were you. I'm booting any of three Linux installs, but they're on seperate partitions.
