Subhasish Ghosh[email protected] Version: v1.0 Last updated: April 7th, 2003
- v1.0: Initial release, reviewed by Linux Documentation Project (LDP). A few structural changes and minor corrections made; Chapters on "Troubleshooting" and "Installing OpenBSD 3.2-RELEASE" added.
Welcome! This document explains how three different operating systems can be installed and configured on the same hard disk of a computer. The reader may choose from: Microsoft Windows 95/98(Second Edition)/Millennium edition(ME)/NT/2K/XP + FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE/OpenBSD 3.2-RELEASE + Linux. Only Intel architecture multi-booting is discussed and GNU GRUB is the boot-loader of choice. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me by e-mail at this address: [email protected]. Thank you!
Note: In the Organization section, readers must choose to either execute Chapter 3 or Chapter 4, but 'not' both.
