Re: How to get the most out of HD space.



> and, now, re-reading my email... since grub says "root (hd0,0)" does that indicate that it is only going to read hdg at boot time?  If I were to create a second boot option in grub.conf with "root (hd1,0)", then could I get it to boot from hde? I guess there would also have to be a way to tell the BIOS to look at hde for the MBR?

That depends on the BIOS disk order. If you have BIOS disks 0 and 1 as
your two disks and the boot data is set to boot of hd0,0 (on both) then
usually if disk 0 fails the BIOS thinks of the second disk as disk 0 and
it works, depends a lot on the BIOS
