Thanks for all the replies. And yes, that's what my FAT32 is for... sort of a mediator for the different OSes which also contains important files but no directories for working applications.
Ok, let me get this in short. You basically recommend me to follow this http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/faq/disks.html#NT-BOOTLOADER ? If I want to copy that /boot/boot1 from my FreeBSD partion to my drive C:\, how can I get to my FreeBSD partition, in the first place, if I won't be able to boot from it after installation? (because I assume the above steps would require you not to touch your MBR while installing FreeBSD). Can I create a boot disk to boot that FreeBSD? Thanks. >On Thursday 20 November 2003 05:14 am, [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: >> As far as I am concerned, I tend to have 1 partition for the system and a >> separate one for user data - this way, you don't wipe everything out if >> your system crashes.
