RE: Adding an 80G Seagate IDE drive....



hey...

this could work.. if i knew enough about linux config/install to do it!!!
however, i'd reall prefer to have the startup happen from one disk, with the
other being used for data/apps...

i've decided after playing around with this to talk with the manufacturer
monday... i've already got 15 servers running.. i can wait for this one...
but i'm ticked that i can't seem to work it out!!

thanks

-bruce

   Does this work for you - install linux on the
   scsi disk and put the MBR on the IDE disk - let the bios
   have that disk as the first boot disk.
