LINUXer,

Can I install Linux into two harddisks (540MB for each) ?
If yes, how ?

Of course you can.

Setup the harddrives to be seen by the bios ( master and slave or primary master and secondary master )

Run fdisk and setup both partitions and install linux in one of them and then you can mount the second once linux is succesfully installed with:

make a dir called  drived and then
mount ext2 /dev/hdb1 /drived

should you want to have that at boot time edit your \etc\ftab file !

Hope this does it !

Not sure about the other distributions, but RedHat allows you to install onto multiple partitions anyway doesn't it?  (ie one for /etc, one for /home, etc)

I've never bothered trying this, but it should be easy enough to partition them all in the setup process and specify where each bit should go.
