I want to install rhel5 on same hard disk. Freebsd6.2 slice is on primary partition , second OS is Fedora 7, 3rd is rhel4 (want to fresh install rhel5 over rhel4) . I can see freebsd mentioned in my rhel partitioning section, most likely linux does not have support for freebsd slice. Last time too I had do format my FreeBSD just for RHEL4/Fedora, and I dont want to format FreeBSD just to install linux. Is there some method to avoid formatting FreeBSD every time I fresh install linux? I have two disks , second disk I use for saving data.
Thanks and Regards Anuj Singh "anugunj".
