help with repartitioning for Linux

Post by Comrade Fra » Thu, 08 Sep 1994 02:26:42



I used FIPS to repartition my hard drive for Linux. But how do I put
all Linux stuff into the new partition? Should I just create Linux
directory at root, and put everything there? Thanks in advance.

I think that you should get a distribution and read the Installation
HOW-TO. The Slackware distribution will hand hold you through all of this.

1. HELP: Installing Linux w/o repartitioning

Hello,

  I've decided that its time to try out a new OS and I would like to try to
install Linux. My machine currently runs MSDOS 6.2 and I would like
to install Linux WITHOUT repartitioning my hard drive.  In order to do
this I have read that I need to use a program called UMSDOS, except I
can not find the info on how to set up Linux with UMSDOS. Does anyone
know how to install Linux this way and where I could get additional info?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
