Another Dual-boot Dual-HD question
Hello ladies and Gents out there in Linux Land :)
I am a first time Linux user, and I love the OS thus far. I have begun learning to program C++ and have a MUD that runs on Linux which is what originally brought me to the OS. Anyway, to make my story a little shorter, I have slackware 10.2 On a HD and Windows on a different HD.. I have tried a few different things to get these two HD's to be Dual boot.
The problem I am having now is this:
I have two seperate HD's I am wishing to run, since they are only 20G each and I'm really poor as a full-time student and have no money for spares -- Is having both OS's already installed going to make any difference?
(Each OS works perfectly when booted in the master slot, jumped as the master)
My windows HD is the master, Linux HD is the slave, and upon startup, I get the dual boot option, and windows will boot fine, when I select linux, it LILO pops up and does its thing, then once it pops to the Linux load screen and goes through my hardware, it gets to the HD and is unable to mount.
I modified the MBR as instructed in a dual-boot setup howto I read, and did the same with windows to get it to this point in the first place, but now I am unable to mount my linux HD.
Does anyone know if this is a simple fix, I read another howto that was based off having windows installed, but installing linux on the seperate HD as you performed the dual-boot setup, I'd rather not have to do this, but I have the boot disc's ready to go, as well as a copy of SUSE pro I could use if its just a Slackware Distro problem..
I'm sure this section gets many questions from people like me about dual-boot setups, and If this is the worlds most redundant question, I appologize. I truly enjoy linux thus far and can't wait to become more familiar with it!:)
