Want to use LILO and GRUB on the same machine? Me neither.

Filed under: Linux — Hogg @ 12:15 pm

Here’s an article I found on Linux.com via Digg that explains how to run Windows XP plus two Linux distributions of your choice all on the same machine. “No big deal,” you might say, but this article explains how to do it using two different boot loaders. Yipee!

Wondering how to create a triple-booting system that involves Windows and two Linux distributions — one that uses the GRUB bootloader and the other using LILO? Here’s a hands-on procedure that lets you do just that, without tweaking cryptic configuration files and messing with geeky commands.

Notice how she says you can do it “without . . . messing with geeky commands.” The only reason to run two bootloaders is to increase your own geekiness and if you’re that geeky, you like “tweaking cryptic configuration files and messing with geeky commands.”

Folks, don’t try this at home. It’s not worth it.
