First of all, since you have Fedora installed, could you list the drives/partitions using the standard linux nomenclature? I am assuming that you have your Fedora on hda and your second drive is hdb or hdc. Could you list the contents of your /etc/fstab?
I am having P.3 866 Mhz 256 MB SDRAM 80 GB HD as primary
40 GB as slave combo drive. The primary drive has FEDORA as OS and it has been partitioned into four as follows:
partition 1 - primary partition - FAT 32 partition using INT 13 services with starting CHS as 0/1/1 and ending CHS as 1023/254/63.Size 37027 GB. Bootable
partition 2 - Logical drive in extended partition - Linux swap partition with starting CHS as 1023/254/63 and ending CHS as 1023/254/63. 831.46 MB. Not bootable.
partition 3 - Logical drive in extended partition - Linux native file system(ext2/ext3/xiafs) with CHS as 1023/254/63 and ending CHS as 1023/254/63. 274.52 MB. Not bootable.
partition 4 - Logical drive in extended partition - Linux native file system(ext2/ext3/xiafs) with starting CHS as 1023/254/63 and ending CHS as 1023/254/63. 37050.77 MB. Not bootable.
CHS means cylinder/head/sector.
I want to load another variety Linux OS in the same drive. How to do it and which type of Linux is to be loaded? If Linux is to be booted, it should reside within starting cylinder of 1023? Is it true?
I am a novice and kindly explain the procedure in a simple manner.
Am I asking to much?
