Linux dual boot with Win98
Posted on 2002-03-10
Previously my computer had Win2K and Redhat7 installed and the dual-boot work fine between them. The Win2K boot menu will prompt me to select between Win2K and Linux. A few days ago my Win2K crashed and completed screwed up. Then, I decided to put Win98 on my computer instead of Win2k. Since the Win2K partition is NTFS which is not compatible with Win98, I removed the NTFS partition using fdisk. What I notice is, the LINUX partition is set as an extended DOS drives (but doesn't show a logic drive letter). After removed the NTFS partition, my computer system couldn't boot anymore. Therefore, I use a startup disk to recreate the FAT32 partition for the disk area released from the NTFS and installed the Win98. Now my computer can boot from Win98, but I like to know how to make the dual boot work between Win98 and Linux. Pls note that the Linux partition is kept intact during my Win98 installation and I don't want to re-install the Linux. Thanks.
