I would like to convert from ext2 to UMSDOS to be able to do a system
backup. I thought maybe I could install to my existing DOS part and then
build a kernel there. I have the UMSDOS slackware root/boot diskettes and
the slackware distribution diskettes for the system parts I need to
install. It very important not to messup the existing ext2 installation on
hda2/hdb1 drives/parts. DOS is backed up well so if it gets destroyed I
can rebuild it ok. A little confused as to how the boot would proceed tho.
how would bootstrap prgram know what OS files to load MSDOS's or Linux's
if they both share the partition?
What do I need to do, to set up the UMSDOS filesystem on an existing
DOS partition? Is it posissible to do it on the THE dos partiton
or is a secondary needed?
