I have a dual boot XP/VL5.9 setup that works fine. When I installed 5.9, I let LILO write to the MBR, so I have a single boot menu with XP and 5.9 as the options.
I now want to add VL6.0 to this, using the "install from within Linux" method.
Rather than do it then post a question when I get in a mess, I thought I'd try to head off trouble at the pass for a change
To be safe, I plan to tell the install procedure NOT to let LILO write to the MBR (so it will write instead to the new partition that gets created during the install process).
Q1) if I do this, when I reboot, will I get my old menu (with no new 6.0 option, of course) or will I get 6.0 starting up automatically, with XP and 5.9 now inaccessible?
Q2) since I already have a Linux Swap partition defined for 5.9, am I right that I can reuse this for 6.0 as well ?
