Save RedHat Install
Posted on 2002-06-09
I have a HP 4050 notebook with 6 GB drive.
I ran the recovery CD that put it back to factory defaults with a C: partition and a D: partition.
I used System Commander to move the partitions around so I could install RH 7.3 also. Each OS has about
At this time everything is working just fine. I can boot on Win2K or RH 7.3
I've got quite a bit of time setting this all up and I need this setup for work. On the weekend I would
like to play with Gentoo. I've booted with the Gentoo CD and it recognizes the NIC and sets up networking
Is their any way for me to:
1. Boot with the Gentoo CD and store the RH partition on a NFS share
2. Zap the partition
3. Install Gentoo
4. Come Sunday night swap Gentoo and RH and be ready for work.
5. Next Fri. night swap Gentoo and RH or Gentoo and Win2K for another weekend learning session?
I'm thinking that some sort or tar, gzip, dd, rsync type thing may work. But there is the Grub stuff
and the syntax and mounting stuff I'm not sure of.
