Booting Linux from DOS 6.2 Multi-Boot...

Post by Dennis Ch » Mon, 21 Mar 1994 03:39:22

        Hello, I was wondering if there was any possible way to boot
Linux kernel V1.0 from the MS-DOS 6.20 Multi-Boot.  I think I remember
that someone had a way to do it, and if there is, could someone please
send me the details on how to do this via e-mail.  This would be much easier
than to hold down the left shift key, would it not?  I think you need a
special driver to tell DOS where your linux partition is...  Please
respond via e-mail.  Thanks in advance...

1. Multi-boot with Solaris 8, Win98, Win 2000 and RedHat Linux 6.2?

I would like to set up a multi-boot scenario on a single Intel x86 system
with a 20GB hard drive, with the following operating systems:

Solaris 8
Red Hat Linux 6.2
Windows 2000 Professional
Windows 98

Does anyone have any recommendations on what order would be the
best for the installs, and which boot managers I should (or have to)
use? How about partitioning? Would FIPS and FDISK suffice for the

Thanks in advance.
