Since I have never done this, I can't advise you further. I don't know
if you have gone to the windowsxp.general newsgroup on
news.microsoft.com, but I think it would be a good idea. There are some
very knowledgeable people there.
hello, searching Googles for SYSTEM_SAV gives some info, but I could
not find a real answer
How can I safely install a dual boot system on my Compaq Presario
1600, which has a 4.5 GB C: partition and a 1.5 GB D: [System_Sav]
I mean I need that winzozz remains ok, since the PC is a borrowed one,
and I must to be able to go back to the original 2 partition
situation. In fact I read that something in the SYSTEM_SAV partition
is vital (drivers?) for restoring the system in case something goes
wrong, or even for setting up Linux (??) correctly
Which of the solutions is safer (for future restore, since the PC is a
borrowed one ;-) )
1) to resize the C: partition, after removing much of the useless
stuff it contains (a lot of downloaded prgms, Office, ...)
2) to resize the D: partition or even delete/reformat it (see below)
3) a combination of 1 and 2.
MAYBE anyone knows the naming conventions or meaning of the hundreds
configuration files saved and backed-up on the D:[System_SAV] drive?
Is there a way to manage/compress/delete what is not useful anymore?
Can you give me a link about?
Note. I will use "Parted" to change my partitions and then I will
install RedHat 7.2 from CD
Is 2GB (boot+swap+home) enough for running RedHat 7.2 and have room
for trying interesting rpms? Could 1.5GB fit?
Thank you all gurus.
