[TriLUG] install questions
Tue, 17 Sep 2002 01:41:52 -0400
I have an older machine, Pentium 233 MMX, 256MB SDRAM, 512 cache, (2) Western Digital 8.4 GB HDD, 24X CDROM, 2X CDRW.
I am presently running it as a Win ME machine, with the (C:\) drive (hda) set as "primary master" and the (D:\) drive (hdb) set as "primary slave". The CDROM is set as the "secondary master", with the CDRW set as "secondary slave".
My intention is to run a tri-boot machine letting Slackware 8.1 and FreeBSD 4.6.2 split the second drive.
I also have V-Com's System Commander 7.05 software available.
I ran RedHat 5.x a few years ago, successfully sharing a single drive with windoze and using an older version of system commander.
1. Should I change the harddrives so that C:\ is primary master and D:\ is secondary master?
2. Should I use the "System Commander" software?
3. Should I install Slackware or FreeBSD first? Does it matter?
This is a learning/re-learning experience, so I have no problem trying something and going back to scratch...any caveats, criticisms, or advice is appreciated.
