I was wondering if anyone is running both a PC based Unix ( i.e. Linux, etc. )
and Dos/Win off the same physical drive by using seperate boot partions. My problem
is that I need to run both DOS/Win and Unix on the same PC. Since most of my time is
spent programming Windows application (i.e. I use de*s, etc.) I need
the two operating systems to run independently from one another. My wish
list is below. The question is how close can I get to the wish list or am
I just dreaming? (If it is possible to do the above, what is the best PC
based Unix vendor.)
* Boot up either DOS/Win or PC based Unix from the same physical hard drive,
perhaps by partioning the drive. Neither operating system needs to know
that the other one exists.
* Run a large part of the Unix system off a CD-ROM. (I have ~540 Mb of
hard disk space but I would love to get some use out of the CD-ROM).
* GateWay 2000 - Intel Pentium, 540 Mb HD, 8 Mb RAM, 2x CD-ROM
