I'm trying to install Linux and Win 95 on the same hard drive. My first attempt involved installing linux in the first three partitions (2 native, one swap) and then Win 95 in the final DOS partition. But Windows wouldn't install, saying it couldn't write to part of the drive.
My question is, what's the best way to go? I tried to delete Linux and install windows on the whole drive, but I couldn't get any kind of access onto C: again, the system kept saying 'missing operating system'. However I did it, I couldn't get into DOS on C:/ and had to install linux again.
So, to cut a long story short, can I install windows into the first partition on the drive while Linux is already there, or does windows have to go on first? And what's the best kind of configuration for doing this (6gig drive)?
