    Double panic agter install

    Just thinking this Hard drive will (eventully) be dual booting W2K and OSx but i have another 40GB drive that OSx can "have" (my bios program lets me choose the booting HDD or Optical, whatever) which i think would be better! So what do you think (this question sometimes gete me into trouble!) Thanks for help / sarcasm etc! Hmm been told that pressing the F8 key at starup would invoke a menu with the diag -v option but cannot get that to work? is F8 the correct key? i think i am using Darwin 8.01 (but came with the 10.4.5 iso cant find the .img file on the iso to try another method of installing!

    darwinx86-801.iso.gz problems

    Well i've tried everyting i can think of I just cant get an .iso out of darwinx86-801.iso.gz I have 7-zip (says unsupported archive) WinRAR wont let me have just the .iso (if it is in there) imgburn does not recognise .iso.gz UltraISO does not recognise .iso.gz either. (has advanced options maybe some one can help me here??) I dont want to install linux just to get an .iso working. Is there any chance someone can upload the .iso to a public place?

    Thanks man So do i update Darwin once installed? i assume OSx has an Apple update or similar? I think it's interesting that Apple OSx is based on FreeBSD!!! big shock. I hope that apple is a success as this will help the *nix technogys and maybe with colabration will help break the MS monopoly.

    Lol! see what you mean. okay i gave up trying to burn that .iso.gz because i think it's corupted. I am now downloading Darwin 801 again and am going to use 7-Zip (after advice from another post because WinRAR extracts the all files and NOT just the .iso (which is what i want) if i ever do get the .iso i'm going to upload it using www.yousendit.com and announce the URL to get it then maybe some people can host it (if legal of cource) so newbies like me have a slightly easier time of it.

    Standard PC Multi-boot

    *** please direct me if similar has already been asked (i did check (at 03:00 uk time!) *** Okay i have an Asus P4C800-E Deluxe Pentium 4HT800 2.6 (running stable at 2.92 on boring RAM!) 2GB of boring but stable (at this speed) RAM 40GB "Test HDD just for the occasion" ATI 9600XT AIW Creative Audigy 2 Platinum pro ZS (with (probaly ZC'97 onboard if that dont work)) Lava Dual parallel Port card (can see probs using this!) Basically i want to create a Multiboot for Windows 2K/XP and OSX (Downloading 10.4.3) I had the idea of using GRUB as the boot manager with dedicated partitions (this way i could also put a *nix flavor on it) (have no idea how to manually configure GRUB so am going to look into it) (normally i just use the automatic settings on Fedora CORE4 etc. So is there a how-to on the subject? Does OSX support CIFS/Samba? (for my NAS box) (Can use FTP if not) www.freenas.org
