I am having some problems understanding how the freebsd boot manager
works. I have installed FreeBSD and Linux on the same laptop HD and want
to be able to select which one to boot when the computer starts. I
installed the bootmanager to to the MBR during installation and when I
boot the laptop I am presented with four choices;
F1 - FreeBSD
F2 - Linux
F3 - ???
F4 - Linux
but I am only able to select F1, F2-F3 only make the laptop beep and
doesnt load anything. The way I have set up the HD is for Partition 1 to
be a FreeBSD Slice, Partition 2 the Linux / Partition 3 is Linux swap
and Partition 4 is Linux /home. Any help would be great
This is a silly question, actually: do you have LILO installed on your Linux
I have BootEasy on the MBR, and LILO on Linux boot, and it works just fine.
Thanks for the reply. I tried a new approach because I dont think Ubuntu
uses LILO. So instead I installed GRUB to the MBR and added an entry
for freebsd in /boot/grub/menu.lst
title FreeBSD 7.1, RELEASE
