Hello,

I am getting a laptop in 6 days 8) and therefor the new laptop will be pure windows xp pro (yeah I know... but I need it for somethings)... and I will be turning this box (currently dual winxp pro/rh) into a pure *NIX box, will put redhat 8.0 (hopefully final will be released in the new few weeks) on the 20gig partition (currently win) and OpenBSD 3.1 on the 10gig partition (currently linux)... just wounder if anyone had and tips in doing this is if anyone has done it...

if anyone is in my situation: ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/3.1/i ... TALL.linux
is a good read...

Cheers,
Liam.

Have fun. In my experience running two operating systems (even *nix ones) on the same disk is more work than its worth. Disks are cheap, save some headaches. I bless each OS a disk of its own these days. Eg. BSD isn't native to ext3 fs & grub, not that it should matter, but strange quirks do surface.

I fooled with openBSD for a moment, and thought it was really nice. But I dunno what you wanna use it for. My conclusion was; a beautiful network server/firewall. Don't even think about using it for desktop applications, unless you're a hardcore CVS monkey.
