    Mounting ISO image


    hi all,
    I am running mandrake 10.1 community version. I would like to have another operating system on the same system. I heard of mounting the ISO's directly and making changes in grub would do the trick. Does anyone have any idea about it?

    Thanx

    Well, you really wouldn't need to mount the iso image. Just make sure that you have an extra partition ready, and then install there, if you want to keep your same grub settings just select during the new os's installation process not to install a boot loader and then manually setup your grub; however, most distros now have excellent detection of previously installed systems and if you let them they will configure it for you.
    Operating System: GNU Emacs
