    Dual boot with 2 hd's

    Would I need two boot partitions,1 for each OS? Or can they share?
    Also, what would be the best way to configure lilo?
    Main OS is Slackware 8.1, second is going to be Gentoo 1.4_rc4.

    Re:Dual boot with 2 hd's

    Something like this:


    Code:
    boot = /dev/hda
    vga = 771
    read-only
    lba32
    prompt
    timeout = 80
    message = /boot/message
    
    image = /boot/vmlinuz
    label = Slackware8.1
    root = /dev/hda2                #or wherever it is
    initrd = /boot/initrd
    
    image = /hdb1/vmlinuz
    label = Gentoo1.4_rc4
    root = /dev/hdb2                  #or wherever it is
    initrd = /boot/initrd.gentoo
    optional
    
    image = /boot/memtest.bin
    label = memtest86
