Stop me from making an install mistake before I do...
This is my first post to LinuxForums so hello all! I am an experienced Windows user/computer builder who loves the idea of running an open-source nix-based system. I've had some brief experiences with past versions of RH and have been playing with KNOPPIX and MORPHIX for the last few weeks. My wife is strictly a plug-and-play Windows user who loves to play with all my boxes. This means that I need to dual-boot if I want to install a permanent Linux OS on one of my computers.
I have already installed Win XP Home on the primary partition(10.9GB) of one of my boxes and would like to install RH 9.0 on the second partition (8.1GB). When Anaconda gets to the partitioning/file system setup (automatically partition) I choose "Keep all partitions and use existing free space." When I click "next", I receive the following error: "Boot partition /boot may not meet booting constraints for your architecture". I am making an assumption here that this error is caused by the fact that Linux cannot be installed to the primary partition with the MBR. Is this correct? Can I disregard this message and continue with the installation? How should I setup GRUB so that the system boots properly? Any advice would be highly appreciated. Thank you!
