Linux Slackware 3.3 with win 95
Posted on 1998-01-23
I read your document about installing Linux with win 95.
I have the following configuration:
6 GB HDD partitioned
C: 2GB / FAT 32,
D: 2 GB / FAT 32
E: 2GB / FAT 32
I have win95 version
Windows 95. [Version 4.00.1111]
DOS is in HMA
And I bought a slackware version 3.3
Now my question to you what should I do to install Linux properly with Win 95
Cause I installed Linux on Drive "E" and it didn't work at all, it was just a dos directory.
1. shall I use FIPS to partition drive "C" to 450 MB for Dos and Windows (I do not like to do that cause you know that new software now eats HDD space, not like before where software used to be small in size);
2. Can I install it on one of the other partition without having to partition "C" using "E" as an example. (maybe because the new version of slackware will allow me to do that.
3. Or can I buy a new hard drive and make it detected to the Linux OS but it will be after drive F cause I do have "F" used for CD ROM, so may be I will make it "G" or something, but can I reboot Linux from drive "G"
Please try to answer me, cause I need your help.
Thank you very much in advance
