Thumbs up dualbooting xp+redhat9+fedora3+fedora2

I was trying to install xp+redhat9+fedora2+fedora3 (+fedora3 ) for testing.

The problem was partitionning.
Every linux need "/" partiton ( or not? )


=== this is partition infor while installing redhat9 with windowsxp ==

hda1 ntfs #already install windows xp
hda2 ext3 / # for readhat9 : already install
hda3 ext3 /fedora1 # tried to install fedora3 but failed
hda5 ext3 /fedora2 # reserved for future
hda6 ext3 /fedora3 # reserved for future

hda7 ext3 /fedora4 # reserved for future

hda8 ext3 /fedora # reserved for future

hda9 vfat /dos
hda10 swap

=== this is partition info while installing fedora3 with windowsxp and redhat9 ==

hda1 ntfs #already install windows xp
hda2 ext3 /red9 # for readhat9 : already install
hda3 ext3 / # tried to install fedora3 but failed
hda5 ext3 /fedora2 # reserved for future
hda6 ext3 /fedora3 # reserved for future

hda7 ext3 /fedora4 # reserved for future

hda8 ext3 /fedora # reserved for future

hda9 vfat /dos
hda10 swap


======================================

I had to change partiton name like above
because fedora3 needs / partition like other linux.

I had to re-downgrade grub because the grub of fedora3 didn't work.
So, I selected rescue mode with redhat9 cd and reinstalled grub of redhat9.

By the way, Windows XP looks good, RedHat9 looks good also.
Fedora3 has some disk problem.

I need some advice regarding this kind of linux multi-bootong problem, not
between Windows XP and Linux.

Every linux needs / partiton........... Huer -.-;;

Thanks!

You can do that, however in the "/boot/grub/grub.conf" and in the "/etc/fstab" for EACH of your Linux installs, you will need to change the "LABEL=/" to the physical partition containing the "/" filesystem for that linux system.

Either that, or after you are done install a particular linux, you can change the "label" on the "/" partition to somethine else (like "fc3/" or "rh9/") and update the grub.conf and "/etc/fstab" with the new "root" partition label.

Thank you james!

I changed volume label "/" to "/red9" using "tune2fs"
Then installed Fedora core3.

Everything was fine, redhat 9 was good, fedora3 was fine.
but suddenly file system looks crashed ;;

So, I am just thinking why. and I'm gona try it again later.

Thanks james again.
If I success, I will tell you...

Have a good day james ..... from Toronto, Canada
