I have a computer with a 30 GB hard drive. The drive is partitioned
into three sections, each roughly 9 GM in size. On the first and second
partition I have Windows NT and 98 installed respectively (for work
purposes *smile*). I wish to install Linux (either RedHat or Debian) on
the last partition.
Can I install Linux on the last section of a 30 GB drive? Will Linux
operate and function normally?
My reason for asking this question is that with Windows NT during
boot-up the Kernel cannot access anything on the primary drive after the
first 2 GB address space -- this is also critical for the Blue Screen of
Death and Core Memory Dumps, etc. I guess this is due to the limitation
of a 16 bit address operating system???
I would appreciate it if you could, in addition replying the the News
group, email me your responses also, please. I am working at a client
site where I do not have readily access to the Internet, USENET, etc.
