RedHat9/FC3 dual boot problems
I found this in a previous post--
By default, RH uses volume labels rather than device names to mount its
partitions. Fedora probably does the same. So /etc/fstab has lines
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults 1 2
You need to change /etc/fstab on *both* to use the device names rather
than labels, e.g.:
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda2 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
This seems like the solution to my RH9/Fedora 3 dual hard disk problem....however...I am unclear on how to start this. Should I
a) boot to linux rh9 rescue to change the fstab and grub
b) able to make these changes in fc3
being new to the file systems- I am thinking the following:
change what the post suggest
esc ctrl zz then
esc ctrl zz
one of my other questions may be am I adding the /dev/hdb2 under LABEL=/ (?) or deleting Label=
I apologize for asking these simple questions but I have tried for the last two weeks with numorous configs to boot to rh9---got a little further than before but now I'm stuck.
title fedora core
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.11-1.35_fc3 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=/dev/hdb2
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot1 /boot ext3 defauts 1 2
Thanks in advance....
