SubjectHow to install two linux OSes on the same PC
Hi  All,

I want to do two different linux installations rh 7.2 and rh
8.0 on the same pc with single hard disk. I installed the rh 7.2 in
partitions say /dev/hda5 ( /) , /dev/hda6 (/home) , /dev/hda7 (
/usr) ,
/dev/hda8 ( /tmp),... /dev/hda11 etc.

But how can I install the rh 8.0 in partitions say /dev/hda12
( as "/" ) ... etc ?? Since the installer won't allow as there
already exists a "/" partition for the rh 7.2 and tries to override
it with the root partition of rh 8.0. So I tried giving a different
lable to the root partition of rh 8.0 say /root1 and other partitions
as /root1/usr, /root1/home, /root1/tmp etc. But here also the installer
is looking for the partition named "/" and without that the installation
is not happening.


Please give your suggestions on how to resolve this problem.


At present my partition table with single installation (rh 7.2) is,

[root@creddy-pc root]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 2434 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 261 2096451 6 FAT16
/dev/hda2 262 2434 17454622+ 5 Extended
/dev/hda5 262 522 2096451 6 FAT16
