Mark's Mega Multi-Boot Computer
There are different ways to set up a multi-boot system using Linux and other operating systems. If you do it right, you can use one kernel for all the Linux distributions. In the method shown, the swap partition is shared by all Linux distributions.
If I had started from scratch, I would have used one 20GB IDE hard drive. As a suggestion, if you have to duplicate the configuration above, I would install Windows 98 first, then Windows NT, then FreeBSD, then the Linux distributions.
Personally, I think it is very cool and exciting how there are so many options associated with LILO. In my opinion, both LILO and the kernel are very well-designed. LILO makes it easy to do the weird stuff like I did above. Thanks to all the guys who developed LILO and the Linux kernel, and to Paul Hostetler and Phil Hunter for their help.
