Adding Redhat or SuSE

I have WinXP running on my primary IDE (using NTFS) and Win 98 on the secondary IDE (using FAT32). I have some free space on the primary IDE and want to know if I can install Redhat 8.0 or SuSE 8.1 with some degree of confidence that it's boot loader will automatically add both versions of Windows to the Boot Menu.

I had a problem with Redhat 7.2 some time ago when I was attempting to dual boot with Win98. Redhat installed okay and added an entry for Win98 to it's boot menu but every time I tried to boot into Win98 I sat there looking at a blank screen! I could boot into Redhat and it worked okay but no Windows.

Thanks, Alan


linux & windows

Yes, SuSE Linux will see both partitions/HDD and will add
the respective names to the Linux bootloader.
You can even name the OS systems you're running and will even do a non-destructive repartioning if Linux needs more space.

I'm running SuSE Linux since version 5.3 and it has improved with 400 %

suse looks interesting. i almost bought it the other day at best buy, but since you can just d/l it free from http://www.linuxiso.org/, i didn't. of course you don't get handy manuals or anything, but hey, it's free.

i'm currently using mandrake 9.0 and redhat 8.0.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
