"Triple" Boot


Recommended Posts

dmd3x

I a week or two, I am going to repartition my 20GB hard drive like this:

2.5GB NTFS (Win2k)

7.5GB FAT32 (Data)

5GB EXT3 (RedHat Linux)

4.5GB EXT3 (Debian Linux)

512MB Linux Swap

I was planning on installing them in this order: Win2k, RedHat, Debian. I want to use the Grub bootloader.

I have never done this before, and I was wondering if anyone has some good tips or advice that I should have before attempting this.

2.5GB NTFS (Win2k)

7.5GB FAT32 (Data)

4.90GB EXT3 (RedHat Linux)

4.5GB EXT3 (Debian Linux)

100mb boot

512MB Linux Swap

Install the RedHat boot manager and stuff to the 100mb boot, and tell Debian to put its kernel on the debian root partition and not install a boot manager and config redhat to add an option for Debian.

I would have to add a line that is not already there, correct? If so, what would that line be?
