Installing Linux and SCO UnixWare 7/Open UNIX 8 partitions
This section describes the process for installing
SCO OpenServer and SCO OpenLinux operating systems
on the same computer.
You can use the steps in this section as a guideline
for installing partitions for other variants of Linux,
as well as SCO UnixWare 7 and Open UNIX 8.
However, in place of Step 4,
refer to your Linux documentation
or the boot(1M) manual page
in the SCO UnixWare 7/Open UNIX 8 documentation
for details on configuring that product's boot loader
to work with SCO OpenServer.
For information on accessing the different
operating systems installed on your computer, see
``Switching between operating systems''.
Install SCO OpenServer into the first partition on the
root drive, as described in
``Installing or upgrading an SCO OpenServer system''.
Do not use a third-party disk partitioning product to
partition the hard disk before installing the desired
operating systems. If you do, you may need to
start over by running a low-level format of your
Install SCO OpenLinux into the next partition.
During the installation, select to install the
Grub boot loader into the master boot record.
When the SCO OpenLinux installation completes,
do not reboot the computer.
Log in to SCO OpenLinux as root.
Edit the /boot/grub/menu.1st file and
add the following section:
title = SCO OpenServer
chainloader --force +1
In this section, ``hd0'' represents the root drive
and ``0'' is the partition where SCO OpenServer is installed.
Reboot the computer.
