O.K., I've got Red Hat 5.2 and I've read many many HOW TO's and mini HOW TO's in regards to Running Win95b and Linux. Win95b is currently running on my Intel 233. I don't suffer the regret of FAT32 so that's not an issue. Now I'm dealin w/ the 1024 Cyl. issue. Various HOW TO's state the 1024 is at the 520MB or so mark and so I backed up the Pri partion(C:) and got rid of stuff i can live w/ out till i get the Linux Partitions done, The HD is 6.4G BTW. So, now i've got under 400M of used space on the HD. There is only 1 partition on the HD at 2047M(PRI DOS). I used FIPS and it says that 1049M is still in use and so i aborted. Also, I noticed that inside FIPS that the new partition would start at the 133 cylinder. What's that all about? I thought 133(up to 1024) is ok for the Kernal. Maybe i'm just totally confussed. BTW, w/ todays Linux filesystem in mind how much space should i allocate to the /root partition w/ upgrading in mind?
I really dont want to go through the hassle of totally re-partitioning and reloading Winbloze so, any input is appreciated.
