(?) Linux Box on windows

From Uri Rado

Answered By Heather Stern, Breen Mullins

How can I install a linux windows on windows?????

Uri Rado.

(!) [Heather] Hmm, such a simple question, so many ways to interpret it.

[about adding Linux to an existing Windows install]

(!) [Breen] WinME apparently added a new and bizarre way of reporting cylinder numbers on large drives (the physical cylinder modulo 1024 or some such) which confused the dickens out of Parted. I don't know if the fix is in the latest released version but it has been reported on the parted list.
Make very very sure that you're using the latest version of whatever tool you're using if you've got WinME anywhere near your box.

(?) Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
