Booting linux with win2k + 98
i recentlay install red hat linux 8.0 on my 40 gb harddrive on a logical partition. i made 3 partition / , /boot and swap.
i installed lilo on /boot partiton coz i think installng lilo or grub on mbr destroys my win2000 boot manager. i successfully complete the whole process and also made a bootable linux floppy.
what i had in mind is to have linux boot sector and copy it into dos partiton and add a line to start my linux from windows 2000 menu.
i did the exact procedure as stated in several how-tos on linux sites and added my linux option in windows 2k boot loader. when i rebooted and chose the linux option but nothing happened except a blank screen.
i also used bootpart to do the same thing but no success.
Now. i can boot my linux from the floppy disk i created but i wanted to ask you guys that what options i have to boot linux from my harddrive.?
if i install lilo or grub on mbr. will it solve my prob?
i dont want to destroy my win2k installation so plz tell me any answer that have been tested ..
thanks in advance.
