33969Re: [linux] GRUB + Win2K Pro
- May 1, 2002First ask yourself
what is "boot" ?
what is "reboot" ?
if ( !win2k )
reboot; //hint! hint!!
start( win2k );
In otherwards you should say mounting the win2k partition( that's if it's
not already mounted.
$ mount -f vfat default 1 2
If you figure out a way to switch OS, or switch from a linux kernel( that
communicates with your hardware ) to a win2k kernel without rebooting the
box don't hesitate to tell networkAdmins of you newly founded trick. 'cause
personally i know that Admins hate to reboot!
They love uptime.
