I have installed 8x512MB on a SF-V240, but the system
only founds 3GB.
Then presuming it's under warranty or support, call Sun.
I have a multi-boot machine with a 12GB hard disk. The first 8GB are
partitioned as 2GB, 2GB, and 4GB partitions, leaving 4GB unused space
at the end. However, this means the unused space is beyond sector
#1024. My BIOS will handle that, but I cannot get RH Linux 5.2 (using
either fdisk or Disk Druid) to add a new partition out there.
Do I need to shrink one of the other partitions in order to get room
for installing the kernel in the first 1024 sectors of the disk?
The current setup is: first 2 GB == DOS, plus the NT loader and
BOOT.INI file and the Windows 95 OSR2 *.bat files, all in a FAT16
partition. The next 2GB are a FAT32 holding Win95. The next 4GB are an
NTFS partition holding NT 4.0 SP4. By having the loaders in the FAT16
at the beginning of the disk, I can put the other operating systems
wherever I want on the disk. Is there anything analogous for Linux, or
do I have to have a partition for it separately in the first 1024
Thanks for any help.
