Partitioning Linux with Windows98 / LILO questions
Posted on 2003-03-18
I just bought a new Pentium 4 bare-bones system and am preparing to partition my clean hard drive to accommodate both Linux 8 and Windows 98. I did this on my old computer and it worked fine, but I haven't done it in a few years. If I recall correctly, to begin I first boot up the Linux install and partition the hard drive using Linux fdisk; after that is finished, including setting up LILO, I then boot up with a Windows 98 floppy and install Windows from there. Is this the correct basic procedure? I've also read about a problem with LILO not being able to work past an 8 gig limit on /dev/hda1 where I put Win98 FAT32 (Boot=*) on my previous computer. Has this been fixed in the newest Linux? I'd appreciate any help, including reference to a good help sheet online if anyone knows of one.
