Booting tow Linux from one bootloader

Postby abdul_mateen » Wed Jan 07, 2004 10:29 am

Q.How to boot two Linux from one boot loader.
A.First of all Suggest the boot loader of any one then make the bootable floppy of the next one. I tried it with Mandrake 9.0 and Redhat 9.I suggested the Mandrake 9.0 bootloader and then make the floppy of Redhat 9.0.Now Copy your whole floppy in /boot/<anydirectory> and then add the image of the following images for example. imitrd:-/boot/<thedirectoryyouchosen>/initrd.img
vmlinuz:/boot/<thedirectoryyouchosen>/vmlinuz/

You should post this kind of stuff in the Wiki please,
Perhaps you might want to go into detail, it would be beneficial im sure for other people in the future.

and you dont have to double post, you can always edit your mistakes once logged in.

first of all i would like to say that don't create different thread for your Question as you did for Booting tow Linux from one bootloader and usually what i like to do is have two seporate kernels i can choose from on boot time but you can actually have more than one seporate partitioned instance of linux, sure

# man lilo.conf
# man grub.conf


Best Regards.
