Trying to get Fedora to even load on an existing Dual P3 Xeon Server with Win2K Ad.Sv
Can someone tell me first WHERE to get a program that will load Fedora thru the Windows 2K Adv. Svr. to the second drive (after I re-format it again),
Second, How to make it a dual boot system, w/o screwing up the Win2KASvr.
Third, I intend to load this not as the office type Fedora, but as server and development options. I would greatly appreciate any help that would be no brainer type, since I am totally lost on linux type commands. TY.

You probably have hardware raid on the system, and Fedora only sees the first drive. If so, try disabling the raid first. Also, you may have a better luck with some sort of a Live CD like Knoppix. Once you boot with the Live CD and it detects the second hard drive, partition it with ext3 filesystem and then try Fedora again (maybe it will see it that way). If Knoppix doesn't boot on that hardware, try Xen Live CD. Finally, you could also install VMware Server in Windows and Fedora as Virtual Machine, but install Fedora on the "raw" partition (not the virtual drive) on the second drive (Windows you said detects it). That way, if Fedora's grub bootloader is configured properly, you can reboot your computer and have fullly functional dual boot system (with an option to also use Fedora as a Virtual Machine in VMware on Windows ).
Anyway, good luck!
