RE: Win95 and Linux: Was: Verified Re: Unidentified subject!

Well, I hesitate to say it's not there, but I installed it and it runs
fine. Note that I DON'T use LILO, didn't install LILO, and didn't do any
fiddling with my config files. I'm using a Compaq Presario 4840
(PII-266), so it's not much of a wait to boot to Win95 and run the
Linux95 program :-)...

Future plans, use Partition Magic to move my Debian partition to the
front of the drive and install LILO so I can skip the 45-second delay
waiting for Win95 to boot <g>. (I absolutely LOVE how fast Debian loads
on this thing!)
