Re: [vox-tech] Problems with dual boot system (Win 98/RH 7.2)

Thanks for the advice..

Both OS's seemd to be unstable when Windows crashed so I could not mount 
the Windows partitions to backup files (that was one of the first things I 
tried, and kernel panic came up)

I do have two large HDD (40G for win98 and 30G for RH7.2) and thought that 
would suffice to keep the two lovebirds away from each other, but I'll try 
the fdisk /mbr and boot linux with a floppy instead of grub.  When I do 
reformat the MBR, do I need to reinstall some default settings, is that 
what sys c: does?  (I'm a plant biologist, not a CS major, so please bear 
with my ineptitude.)

I guess when kernel panic comes up is a good reason to compile a new 
kernel, no??  How is that problem solved, in case it rears its ugly head
