When use win98,you can type "winipcfg" in run program to see your ip assigned by your isp. Anybody knows the cmd used in win2000 advance server which has the same function? My dos window seems cannot display persistently,only a flash then dispears.why?

I want to type:
ln -s /dev/ttyS2 /dev/modem
but mistyped to:
ln -s /dev/ttys2 /dev/modem
I want to break this link,but forget the cmd.Now whenever ls -l /dev/modem,always -->/dev/ttys2.I want it -->/dev/ttyS2. I haven't find the cmd in man.Any idea?

Guy,
A good cautionary note and a nice Linux community.

Guy,
The instructions are clear and practical. I use another large disk and boot win2kpro/redhat from the boot menu. It's ok now. What's your cautionary note?
Now I use KDE and want install websphere4.0/weblogic6.1 to shift java programs to linux,but I am not sure if redhat7.2 supports ibm http/iplanet web srv;I think it can support apache and tomcat. An interesting trip begins.

Guy,
I can dual boot win2k/linux now,using floppy to boot Redhat7.2. This time I tried to use a very small disk and basic installation. The results of df -m are as follows:
Filesystem 1M-blocks used Available Use%Mounted on
/dev/hda5 1422 972 378 72%/
/dev/hda2 61 6 52 10%/boot
none 62 0 61 0%/dev/shm
You have mail in /var/spool/mail/root
So next we can try to boot both from a menu,right?
Thanks.

OK,I have done the first step.
w2k works fine.

Guy,
I'd re-install,but if I install lilo at /,do I need /boot,or only / and swap for simplicity? As I see /boot/map,/boot/boot.b...in the lilo.conf,maybe we will use it later.
Can I create the boot floppy if I haven't mount /dev/fd0? As I failed creating floppy last time,I don't know why.

FDISK show all partitions. But now can't delete linux part. Custom install,hda1(ntfs) not set mount point,others do. Anybody knows the simplies way to dual boot?

Have two partitions,primary for win2k advance server,install no problem. Then install redhat7.2,custom install type,manual disk druid:hda1(ntfs),hda2(/boot,linux native),hda5(/,linux),hda6(swap,linux),hda7(/home,linux),format,create boot disk(some error,I skip it creating),boot record on /dev/hda MBR....all ok,but when reboot,no w2k only linux. And also can't use partition magic again.

Tim,
The article is from this linux forum and the link is http://www.lincezone.com/linux/dualboot.htm .
I know you perhaps use another the LILO Linux boot loader to dual boot win2000 and linux. The way that the above article mentioned seems complicated. So,do you have the same kind of article(I mean step by step in details) for linux/win2000 beginners to follow? I know some developers do want to shift java programming from windows to linux,but they can't give up win2000 right now.
Your reply is appreciated.

I installed win2000 adv server first and then redhat,but failed. Some articles say,I need to install win2k at c:\partition on entire disk,then use Partition Magic to resize and move the win2k partition back,to let 50--100M unformatted room for linux /boot at the begining,and also don't let c:\ partition past 1024 sector marks. what does that not past 1024 sector mean? How to deal with it? Anybody successful use this way to dual boot?
Your reply is appreciated.

I am interested in the GRUB bootloader in RedHat7.2. Does anybody know how to use it to install the dual boot system(win2k/linux)? It must be much easier than the Lilo.
