Hi there.

I wonder if anyone knows what version of RedHat you're supposed to have to get RedHat working on a PC with AMD-processor?
(or another distrubution of Linux)


I have Windows 95 and Windows NT running om my computer.

I have three hard discs and one CD-Rom with this configuration.

Primary Master = Windows 95
Primary Slave = My CD-Rom.
Seconday Master = empty hard disc where I want to install Linux.
Seconday slave = Windows NT.

Is there anything else you're supposed to do get Linux working with this configuration?

Please mail to gustav.wiberg@gwsoft.nu if you have an answer... It's urgent! :-)

I don't think you should have problems. A empty disc for Linux alone is the best what could happen. Use the latest distribution of any distributor. Suse 6.3, Red Hat 6.1. The only problem you will get is to use the Windows NT manager for linux.
