    boot error into linux


    Ive just installed linux mandrake 8.1 and when i boot the machine a chipset virus message appears and never appeared before.

    I have duel boot win2k and xp on one HD and linux on another, is there any way to get all three to duel boot????

    and can anyone tell me how to get rid of this message, there is no virus on my machine as ive checked???

    Thankyou in advanced

    maybe turn off virus detection in your bios or some other settings in there.

    for triple boot you would most likely have
    to delete one of your windows installs unless you already have unclaimed space on there

    then give whatever to linux install it then reinstall your second windows

    expect many problems (not the best choice of oses to do that.
