Win2000 professional + Fedora core -2 and freebsd 5.2.1
Could somebody let me know the steps for doing this ?
You can very well have these three on the same machine.
You should be having a minimum of four partitions for doing this.
A (preferebly) primary partition for Windows
A partition for Linux /
A swap partition for Linux
A primary (mandatory) for FreeBSD
A typical setup will be like this.
/dev/hda1 -> Linux Swap
/dev/hda2 -> NTFS (Windows 2000)
/dev/hda3 -> UFS (FreeBSD) [Mandatory to be primary]
/dev/hda4 -> Extented
/dev/hda5 -> Linux (/)
* First install Windows 2000.
* Next install FreeBSD and tell it not to put anything on the MBR
instead write only the BR. You need to create a swap slice and a root
slice inside hda3. Note that you can't use Linux swap.
* Install Linux
Your grub configuration should have something like
title Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional
