testing pclos2010.12 and pinguyOS for nephew on satellite A305 Disk - WD 320gb
Used Pinguy gparted first to setup partitions for itself since I never used gparted before. I wanted pinguy on a 20 g part at end of disk. ( have no good reason why)
Then installed pclos w/drakinstaller onto rest of disk and added a /var (like to cache downloaded software) and a separate /storage, so disk looks like this:
Beginning of disk:
sda7(15gb) - pclos root
sda8(4gb) - pclos swap
sda9(15gb) - /pclos var
sda 10(90gb) - /pclos home
sda11(155gb) - /common storage to be accessible to both OS
sda5(10gb) - /pinguy home
sda? - pinguy swap
sda1(12gb) - /pinguy root
end of disk:
I think I missed opportunity to add pinguy to boot options during pclos install so now have to add it to GRUB. Was used to LILO back in the day. Can I not just open PCC, go to boot and add sda1/boot/vmlinuz-pinguy to options or do I have to alter menu.lst which I have never done?
Thanks for any help.
