I have BSD 4.8 and want to install it on a server that already had Windows 2000 Server and Advanced Server. I want to install BSD on a spare partition so my questions are:
1. Will BSD install for multiple boot with Windows already there and if so,
2. How much disk space do I need for a good server/workstation install - no games or source code - will 5GB do the job? Do I need more?
3. What are the potential problems that I need to be aware of during and after installation?
I just installed Solaris 9 X86 on an older PC with a 4GB HD, and it will not allow me to logon. It issues a message, "DT Messaging system could not be started" and tells me how to work around it with a "failsafe logon" and files to check. I have been all over the Internet looking for solutions. This appears to be a fairly common problem but none of the solutions seem to really work. Do any of you know of a good Solaris Users Group?
I am new to Unix.
