I had a laptop happily in dual boot NT4 and RedHat 6.2
The Linux was installed on my second hard drive.
Recently I installed win2000 on the 1st drive, and now want to
resurrect the dual boot.
It seems as if all I had to do was edit c:\boot.ini and add the line
(My 2nd drive has a FAT partition mounted as F:)
This adds the dual boot option to WIndows startup, but when I choose
Linux all I get is a hung machine with the message:
"Win2000 could not start because the following file is missing or
<windows 2000 root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
Please re-install a copy of the above file"
I read some of the wisdom on this list that suggests booting off a
floppy and effectively writing the bootsect to the floppy to copy onto
the boot hard disk. Can't I just copy from one disk to the other
(I can't get both my floppy and my 2nd HD in the machine at the same
Do I have to put the bootsect.lnx on the C: drive?
Does it matter if C drive is not FAT? Mine is NT5
Do I need to do something else?
