Triple Boot

3 posts in this topic

Okay, I currently have Windows on an 50gig NTFS partition, Slackware on 50gig Linux partition + swap, and I have 20gigs of free space.

Lilo is installed on the Linux partition, and it is set to be the bootable partition so I get the lilo screen at boot, which allows me to choose for Linux or Windows. If anything goes wrong, I only have to boot from a Linux disk, run fdisk and set the first partition (Windows) to be the bootable one. It'll be as if Linux never existed on that laptop.

The thing is, when I boot the OpenSolaris install disk, it warns me that it detected a Linux partition and that Solaris partitions are incompatible with Linux partitions on the same disk. What can I do to solve that problem? My laptop has only one hard disk.

This probaly isn't a good idea, but:

What if you backed up your data on Linux (you said you installed slackware on that laptop, didn't you?), and then install Solaris, and after Solaris is installed, install Linux.
