I'm re-reading Bernard Tyer's helpful article on dual booting.
It has a warning re: Windows NT, saying it doesn't like to share the boot
mgt. with any other system. The computer friend who set up our system will
be soon be upgrading us to Windows 2000 (from ME)--needed for our apps,
unfortunately. Would dual-booting in 2K & linux present the same risks as
NT & linux?
My plan was, after 2000 was safely installed on all our computers, to
"sneak" in & partition one of them for 2000 & linux. Can this plan be
saved? On another website I read that one should always install Windows
first, as it will always "take over" everything else. That's why I thought
I should put the 2000 on first, then partition for linux. . .
I have to be careful, as our computer friend says "if I put anything other
than Windows on our machines it's the last I'll see of him!" So I don't
want to crash the whole system by doing something stupid.
Thanks for pointing me anywhere I can get more info about how to do this, or
whether or not it is wise to attempt it.
