SYSTEM COMMANDER and LINUX
Posted on 1998-04-28
I want to install dos, win95, & Red Hat Linux on a pc using the SYSTEM COMMANDER Boot manager. I had dos & win95 on my pc, installed system commander and things were working perfectly. I tried to install linux & had trouble. So, my question is, i have now formatted the drive & am ready to start over - what is the best method - i.e. dos first, then linux, then system commander or dos, system commander then linux. As you probably know, system commander writes to the master boot record. Linux also gives you the option to write to the master boot record or first - i forget - root partition... The last time i tried (ran the linux install) , i put it in the master boot record ( although system commander was already there maybe this was part of the problem )? I have succesfully installed redhat linux already, and this entails creating a "native linux" partition during setup - I assume this still necessary using system commander, is this true?
