1. Hard Drive/Promise66/Dual Boot conundrum
I want to install linux as a dual boot with Win95, but I'm not sure how
to go about it. I have two hard drives: a 3.2GB Generic IDE hard disk,
which came with the machine, the primary master and a 20GB Maxtor which
I hooked up as the primary master on a Promise Ultra-66 board. My
CD-rom is the secondary master of the generic drive. I currently have 1
gig left on my original and 17 gig on the Maxtor.
There are programs on each drive that need to stay on their respective
drives. I have Partition Magic 4, so I assume I can install it to
create and move
around any partitions that need to be moved to free up space while
keeping the data intact.. I have read the how-to's and any of the
postings that seemed relevant, but I have a few questions:
I would like to end up with between 5-10 gig of linux space. What is
the best way to partition out my drive(s) so that I can have this and
Can this all be accomplished on my large drive with the drivers from
Promise and LiLo 22?
If not, what is the smallest partitition I can use on the smaller drive
to boot linux?
Does the linux swap partition have to be on the same drive as the linux
I would like to put the swap partition as the first partition of the
ultra-66 drive because I believe that would speed up swaps. Can/should
this be done with winfiles there already?
Does LiLo and/or BootMagic have to be on the same drive that Win95 boots
I would like to use either RedHat or Caldera. Does either have any
benefits under these hardware circumstances?
