Re: Dual booting FC2 with FC1

When it comes time to set up grub during the install, one option is to put the FC2 grub boot record on the boot sector of your new root sector, leaving the current master boot record as is.

Then, you can boot to FC1, mount the partition that FC2 is on and integrate the boot information from the FC2 /etc/grub.conf into the FC1 /etc/grub.conf in a text editor. No need to run anything. The next time you boot, the FC2 choice should be in the grub menu.

What about issues with ~/ config files if you want to share /home between FC1 and FC2? Will there be problems?

I am looking at putting FC2 on a partition but use the same /home directories until I have FC2 fully configured. My wife would kill me otherwise. :)
