I tried to find something for me before starting a new thread but every situation is different. Mine is that I am installing Red Hat 9 onto a partition that I already created using Partition Commander. What I have in physical order:
25G NTFS for my W2K
509M who knows - I think I created it for grub or lilo
11G for Linux
103M not sure
Here, I bare my ignorance to all:
1. Startup has to go somewhere physical. I assume sector 0. Can boot software reside anywhere in any partition and get referenced somehow in the boot sector?
2. I already cringed and installed Red Hat, letting it decide partitions and used GRUB. It installed and locked up on a reboot. Before digging out my Windows recovery disk, I powered down and back up and Windows came up fine. Whew!
3. I guess it's on there. I need a Linux boot disk or something. I don't see where install makes one. I only have a writable CD on this machine anyway.
Question: Can I rerun install using Update and get a dual-boot on my system given this partition info?
