Triple boot system

Postby slick » Thu Sep 11, 2003 9:54 am

Here is the goal that i want achieved:
1. Win2000 partition
1. Debian partition
1. Redhat/Mandrake partition
on one hard disk.

I have installed the win2000 partition and the debian partition successfully. I have about 40G of space left and i want to install another linux on it just to experiment. Now when i try to partition the drives it doesnt let me create another "/" partition. Does anyone know how to go about this? I would really appreciate the help
I only run as fast as my angels can fly

The chroot program, chroot(8), enables us to run different instances of the GNU/Linux environment on a single system

You might consider setting up a chroot area for the non-booting
distribution. This works both ways, in that Debian can host RH and
the reverse. Depending upon things this works really well.

Using chroot is more subtle than the direct brute force method of dual

For details, check this: ... l#s-chroot
