Hi everyone - I'm a first-timer here and have a question about installing FC3 alongside another distro. At the moment, I'm running Mepis Linux, and I'm keen to install FC3 as well.
What I'm wondering is - if I try to install FC3, will it overwrite the current bootloader, or will the FC3 bootloader just "append" itself to what's already there? ( I believe Mepis uses the Grub bootloader). At the moment, I have Grub in the master boot-record. So, if I put FC3's bootloader elsewhere, will it still be possible for me to access both distros?
Very many thanks for your time and comments! - Andy
Yes, it will. Save a copy of grub.conf to a floppy or another
accessible media. After installing FC3 insert the Mepis data into
FC3's grub.conf. Comment out "hiddenmenu" line to see all boot
