windows, i hear, isnt too friendly with other OS's
im running a winxp system now and got all i need to install linux.
iso's on cds, open partition, checked md5s and i seem to be good to go. but the prob is that i hear windows kinda likes to "hide" other OSs. :roll: maybe just myth, but knowing MS, i wouldnt be surprised.
So what do i need to be able to choose what OS when i want it. i believe a program called LILO takes care of this but im not sure how that will work, like do i have to callibrate my computer someway in order for LILO to come up at boot? i dont want to be locked out of my OS
knoppix can fix this , well sorta
knoppix on the cd will fix this dilema because you dont need to install anything on your harddrive just have it in your cd tray and reboot your computer. your bios will have to have the CDROM before the HARDDISK on the boot sequence for the os to boot up. i know that this isnt really a fix for the grub or lilo confusion but it is a work around if you would like to test out linux without installing things
