I want to dual boot win98 and Linux and use LILO to do it.
I just bought a new sys. ( it arrives tomorrow ), so I have a chance to
clear this all up now. The sys is a:
P II 266
Tekram motherboard Bx (intel chipset )
64 Meg SD-RAM (PC 100)
6.4 Gig Hard Drive.....
anyways, I want to be able to just divide my hardrive 3.2 gig to Windows
and 3.2 gig to Linux ( I realize that I need a swap for linux.... that will
be part of its 3.2.gig ).
Can I just divide the disk into two ( really three ) partitions. I read
that some of the newer bioses no longer have the 1024 cyclinder boot limit
and thus do not need to have both Oses bootable portions below the 1023
I was told my Bios chip has LBA.... does this mean My chip is free from
these limits or am I still confined by this limit.... or how do I find out
if my chip is "new enough".
Otherwise I'll have to make a whole bunch of partitions and I'd rather just
have my disk divided like:
3.2 gig Windows
3.1 gig Linux native
0.1 gig Linux Swap
Any help and clarification would be great..... oh I cant wait till this
beast is running.
