I've got a 1 SCSI hard drive and 2 IDE drives. When I got the SCSI drive 2
months ago I upgraded to NetBSD 1.0 and dedicated the SCSI drive to
it. The IDE drives held MSDOG and WINDOZE. To boot netbsd I enter my
cmos and switch drive 1 from the IDE parameters to SCSI and the SCSI
drive maps right in as the boot device.
IHere's my problem. I just installed OS/2 Warp last night rearranging my
IDE partitions a little bit so I can have an unstacked DOS FAT as drive
C, two stacked FATS as D and E and an HPFS as F. This is across the two
IDEs and I boot OS/2 from the second drive's HPFS partition with the
It looks like it's possible to add my netbsd sd0a parition from disk 3 (the
SCSI drive) to the boot menu of OS/2's boot manager if the partition were
labeled bootable in OS/2's fdisk. Hindsight is 20/20 and if I were installing
netbsd after OS/2 I would have created the netbsd boot partition with OS/2
fdisk but this is not the case. CAN I CHANGE my netbsd root partition to
appear bootable by OS/2 bootmanager by twiddling a few bits in that
disk's partition table without hosing the root filesystem. And if so does
anyone know how to do this ?
Thanks a lot.
