Newbie: Booting Linux from XP and then XP from Linux
Date: 15 Mar 2005 08:10:59 -0800
Hi I have searched for a while and can't find an answer to this.
What I want to do is be able to boot to Linux if I am in XP and then
be able to boot back to XP if I am in Linux but without any control
during reboot 'cos this will be over a vpn using VNC (don't ask).
I have Mandrake 10.1 and XP installed in different partitions on the
same disk on a Dell 4700.
Is what I want to do possible and if so could some kind soul tell me
how. I know I will probably have to provide more info but I don't
really know what will be required.
