    Istalling three os


    Hi everyone.

    I have Windows Me and RH8 istalled on my system. My boot manager is GRUB. My fat partition is the first one, the ext3 comes right after it.
    Is there any way I can install FreeBSD on my system. I want to keep Windows and RH. I'd also like to keep GRUB if possible. Anybody know a safe way to do this?

    P.S. I can remove the ext3 and reinstall if necessary.

    You need a seperate partition for every os, so if you currently have 2, you'll need to split one to make a third. You may be able to do this if there is enough free space on an existing partition... how large of partitions are we talking?

    I have no problems with partitioning. I have a 30 GB disk with the first 6GB given to WinMe, 4GB to RH, therefore I have a remaining 20GB I'm not using.
    My only concern is keeping the fat partition safe and keeping the GRUB.

    If you create a new partition from the remaining 30 GB, it shouldn't affect the data that is currently there... it depends upon what utility you are using, though.
