1. Linux and Windows 3.1 resource-sharing.
After some time of watching people talk wonders about Linux, I think
I'm getting ready to give it a try. But, I would like not to disrupt
too much my working enviroment. Currently, I have two PCs (386DX and
486SX), each with a NE2000 network card, a 200 MB IDE disk and
SuperVGA color monitors, running Windows 3.1 and connected via a
Lantastic peer-to-peer network. I have become used to working
in Windows for all my non-development chores, such as writing
documents, balancing my checkbook and sending a FAX, but every
time I have to write code (usually using Borland C++), I start
wishing I had a decent, Unix-based development platform. So, what
I would like to try is installing Linux on the 486 and leaving the
386 as is. My questions are:
1. Will I be able to share any kind of resources through the
NE2000 cards? Peer-to-peer networking would be great, but I guess
I would settle for painless file transfering.
2. Will I be able to boot the Linux computer with DOS?
3. Is there any way I can develop C++ software on Linux to be run
on WIndows 3.1 (8^)?
4. Is there any way I can run Windows 3.1 software on Linux? WABI?
Black magic? Voodoo?
5. Any other relevant suggestions or comments you might think
interesting, shove'em in.
If there is enough interest, I'll summarize. Thanks in advance.
