Hope everything is going great in planet earth! I just wanted to
install slackware 9.1 as dual boot with winXP. I resized that ntfs
partition with ntfsresize
(mlf.linux.rulez.org/mlf/ezaz/ntfsresize.html), now installing
slackware on second partition won't much problem, but I was wondering
where to put lilo? Should I put it on MBR or root partition of linux?
Should lilo be able to read from that first ntfs/hpfs xp partition?
Does XP uses the same boot loader of NT?
And what if I copy using .... "dd if=/dev/hda6 of=/bootsect.lnx bs=512
count=1" and copy bootsect.lnx to the root of the windows partition
and add c:\bootsect.lnx="Linux" to boot.ini? Will it overwrite the xp
bootloader? The worse part, I've got a dell inspiron which does not
have floppy. How do I use a usb mass storage device for copying that
file to ntfs partition, if I have to?
Good heavens! Too many queries .... I know, I know. Please give me
some hints, at least. After all, the newsgroups makes my day even here
Thanks in advance.
