Full Version: Installing Linux 9 On A Windows 2000 Box

My home computer has Windows 2000 professional on it, working very well I might add, however I would like to install Linux 9 on it.

Is there a way to install Linux 9 onto the computer and have a dual boot. I know there are partitioning issues, but I do not want to reinstall Windows 2000 or lose any of the data on the computer.

Thanks ahead of time.

I assume by Linux 9 you mean Red Hat Linux 9?

You will need to partition your hard drive, I recommend using partition magic.

You will not have to reinstall windows unless you choose to overwrite/format the partition while installing linux. During the linux install you will have the option of installing a boot loader. This is where you can specify the dual booting option with linux and windows.

If you have any specific questions let us know.

There is a lot of information on the web about how to set up a duel boot system.
