Dual boot windows 2000 Linux Redhat 8 (W2k Running Slow)

I have been following an excellent thread started by:

Status: Waiting for Answer

Unfortunately I am not an expert and could not contribute to the thread.

I have a 40GB drive partitioned as follows.

Win98
W2k
WinXP
Red Hat 8.0 with GRUB!

Win 2k is running very slow and Explorer is locking up.
This post is to let them know I too have the same problems and will try LILO and report back on this thread.

Cheers
Steve.

BTW - I have used all my points :(

there is no relationship with your explorer and whatever the bootloader you use. i cant understand your actual problem. if the problem is with your win2k explorer it is not due to the bootloaders.

if you can, get me more information..

Found the problem with mine!

In the Computer Management snap in, Disk Management node and select the Linux partition that Windows 2000 has allocated a drive letter by right clicking, choose change drive letter and select to remove the drive letter.

Note the snap-ins laboured hard to analyse the drive and to change the letter but if you wait it will respond.

All immediatley better.

Steve.
