upgrading windows without blowing away Linux ?

Post by btrva.. » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

I currently have Caldera's e.Desktop and windows
98 installed using Boot Magic as the loader.  I'm
planning to install a win 2000 upgrade but am
afraid that I may hose Linux.  I'm assuming that
I have to uninstall boot magic, run the windows
upgrade, and then user the windows 2000 boot
loader.  According to Caldera Boot magic does not
support windows 2000.

1. Linux blows away Windows for same-machine TCP

Machine A: 900 MHz Athlon, WinXP Pro
Machine B: 1200 MHz Athlon, RH 7.2
Network: 100 mbit/second ethernet

TCP speeds:

    A --> B     11000 kbytes/second
    B --> A     11000 kbytes/second
    A --> A     25000 kbytes/second
    B --> B    230000 kbytes/second

I expect B-->B to be a little faster than A-->A.  Give it a factor of 1.33
for the clock speed, another 1.5 for being a later model chip, and a factor
of 2 for the faster bus and DDR RAM, and it is still a factor of 2.3 slower.

I wonder if this is a general suckiness of the Windows TCP implementation,
or if just the loopback device is slow?  (There was an NT/Win2K bug where
loopback was severly limited...the kludge workaround was to find your
non-loopback IP address and connect to that...I wonder if that bug lives in
