    I already got windows 95, NT Server 4.0 with sp 3 and NT workstation 4.0. Now i want to install Netware 5.0 and Linux in my machine. Can Linux and Netware support multi OS in a single machine. Pl. do reply immediately. I have got a project to do in that.

    bye

      Linux certainly can run from a separate partition, as I have WinLinux set-up on my machine at home, which is primarily for Win98.

      Linux can support multiple OSs through LILO.

      You may run into a problem on the NetWare side. NetWare, of course, requires DOS to boot. You can’t use a Win9x command.com to boot it, though.

      A product called System Commander can perform the task of allowing you to boot from up to a hundred or more OS on one machine. I am using it at home to dual boot between DOS and WIN 98. I have had no problems with this product.

      And for a new approach…VMWare (http://www.vmware.com )allows you to run multiple OSs at the same time. I use it, and it rocks. I run a win2k network in 3 vms on my machine for testing. However, it does have some heavy hardware requirements if you need to use it in a production environment. On a dual 733 with 512 mb ram, it runs fairly well.
      Just a thought.

      Since you rejected all those answers, why don’t you just close your question?

      Think above answers had answered your question but they are rejected, maybe you do not want to part with a mere 125 Tech points?
      But anyway, Linux support multiple OS, using LILO.
