    New Forum Suggestion.


    Would a forum for bootloader questions be worth the while? I see that a few people are asking questions about the bootloader, and there's not really a specific area for it, it's not really a linux app, editing it wouldn't come under Installation.

    Just a thought.

    There is no need for something as specific is that, people not being able to configure lilo or grub should go to Newbie forum.

    Most Newbie distros already pre fabricate their grubs and lilos for their users, problem just arises when n00bs tinker with it eh eh or try to install Gentoo but thats why theres the Gentoo Handbook and rum and coke

    I actually think it's a good idea. As a newbie with lots of questions about dual-booting XP and Linux, for example, it would be very helpful to have a centralized resource for this type of thing.

    Or at least a sticky on the Newbie and/or Installation forums with links to HOWTOs and other pages describing main solutions. If you end up doing that and need a few links to get you started, let me know.

    Just my $0.02.
