I installed Sco Openserver 5.0.6 on a second harddrive successfully.
While trying to get it to dualboot the harddisk died. Win98se 64mb
So I made room on my 8.4 primary by using Partition Magic. I tried
to install on that second partition. However all the options seemed
to end with a threat to erase the whole harddrive.
It seems to me that "preserve" will not work because the Handbook
says there must be an existing Unix partition. I am not sure that
if I format the new partition for Linux(the only PM option) that
Unix will install. Also it is hard for me to read the disk telemetry.
I have an older motherboard with the 2.1 gig bios limitation...which
means I use EZbios to overcome it. I am not so sure that Sco fdisk
sees the entire drive. The PM disk info seems to be in different
units that what I see during the installation at the "preserve" phase.
I have read of other installations which have Windows and SCo on the
same harddrive which recommend installing Windows first. So what am
I missing and is the EZbios a factor? Thanks for any help.
