Re: Fedora Core 2 and dual-booting
yea... /mbr isn't documented, but they teach it in the A+ class. people who are computer technitions are idiots, it's because that's what they are taught to be. of course, i already knew the material, i just wanted to take the class to "prove" i did, lol.
i never had any trouble with the /mbr switch, but then again, i've not delt much with the mbr. after 2 lilo messups that rendered my system useless, i converted to grub. this is the only time i ever used the /mbr switch, heh.
i think the mbr is an essential part of a computer that is highly neglected by windows.
