Thread: Xp/red Hat 9 Dual Boot

  1. #1
    Ive been having some major problems dual booting linux. my set up is two hard drives

    Xp on the first one and Linux on the second one

    Does anyone know how to install linux after i have already installed XP

    Everytime i install linux it works but then on the reboot after the installation loads up to a black screen that only says GRUNT or something like that.
    Anyone have a fix for my problem?

    i have i didn't find anything that helped me

    where should i put the linux partition?

    what i have been trying it have a partition for windows on my first hardrive and then have a partition for linux on my second hard drive but this hasn't been working. the first time i tried it i had the linux partition on the same hard drive as the windows partiton and linux had an option to set up dual boot but i still couldn't get windows to load.

    any advice?

    when i did mine i made 10gb unallocated and 20gb left for windows (doesnt have to be that same size, of course)

    I used partition magic 8

    It worked perfectly, just selected the unallocated space for the linux installation (i think, ill look for a tut just to make sure)

    good luck and have fun with linux

    Mandrake is a slight bit more on the user-friendly side. Red hat is fine but youll need to do more configuration than you would in mandrake.

    If you have not been using linux that long, or never used red hat before then I would suggest Mandrake.
