I'm not sure what forum to put this in, so I put this in the Linux forum because people here would be more knowledgable about duel-booting.
I recently discovered I still have IBM DOS 5.0 install diskettes, and I would like to install DOS on my computer. Currently, I have two physical drives. The first partition on the first one is 60gigs with Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 on it, and the second partition is 20gig storage/transfer partition. SuSE Linux 9.1 Professional is on the second 80gig drive.
What I want to do is use my partition magic to create a 2gb FAT Primary Partition on the first hard disk, and install DOS to that. My bootloader is on a floppy, so I should still be able to load Linux, even if Windows has now been moved. When in Linux, I want to modify the Grub bootloader for the new setup (Which I assume is possible). I should then be able to access XP again, and evething SHOULD work without reformatting XP and Linux.
Would all this work successfully?
