With Linux, if you pay the samilar price to either
get two 540 Mb HD or one 1Gb HD, which option is better
or makes no difference at all.
: Please advise.
Due to the sizes quoted, I'll assume SCSI drives. In this
case you would be better off w/two 540Mb drives, as both
can be accessed at the same time. Multi-tasking & SCSI are
most definately friends! Um..possible exception to this
suggestion would be if you intend to eventually need LOTS
of drive space, in which case the 7 drives per host adapter
limit could bite you.

Is there any way to make Linux boot from a hard drive
that isn't correctly set up in the bios?
I install Linux on the drive fine, but Linux won't boot
from the hard drive.
HD: Quantum LPS540AT
Controller: Boca IDE plus
Bios: 1989 AMI
This is all running on an Everex 386 with 7 mb ram.
OS2 won't boot from it either. I do have a software driver for DOS
that let's me use the hard drive with DOS/Windows no problem,
but I'd like to get away from that path....
An email answer is preferred.
