    How to install a another Linux OS in CentOS?


    Hello,

    Here is my problem, and to note I am fairly new to Linux, I have CentOS 6 installed on my PC and I am trying to install another version of Linux onto that PC. My issue is that that this foreign version of Linux will only boot on top of another Linux OS. I have untared the files of this OS and have them sitting in a folder called Install within the Root folder on Cent 6. Is it possible to copy these files to another folder so I can boot this foreign OS?

    Hi and welcome

    What kind of linux is that? Do you have a name and version?
    If it should be based on Linux-Vserver, then you might be out of luck and would need to build a patched kernel and userland tools yourself.
    The latest 3rd_party rpms of vserver seems to be for centos 5.
