Re: Newbee Dual Linux Install and Lilo question...


As far as I'm concerned, if you install a NEW debian linux on your other partition(700MB), then you should do this as a fresh install and use that partition as the linux root. Recall that LILO will be created again when you do this therefore, it should NOT matter. My question is, why are you installing two separate Debian linux? I can see if you wanted to install Windows and Debian or even Redhat and Debian. If it's a kernel problem you are having, you can easily just install both kernels and edit LILO. This would be like having Windows 98 and Windows 2000 with one drive but using a different kernel.
Hope this helps.

Ok I have a fully installed and functioning debian install of Linux on 1
partition.  I now have a second partition of 700mb that I want to install a
second fully functional debian on.  I was going to do this via the cd and
have it install on the second partition this time.  Do I need to make any
changes to lilo before I do this or do I make the changes after I install
the fully functional Linux on the second partition.  Thanks Kris
