what are my options?

Hi,
I currently have windows 2000 on its own 20 GB hard drive, which isnt going
anywhere :slight_smile:.
And a second hard drive I mess around with (its is really used mostly for
beos)
What I would like to know is whether I could install, from a cd, QNX, onto a
partition on my second HD.
I remember someone saying that it wouldnt boot from a second hard drive.

Also, what is the OS really like, compared to BeOS (my current favorite
alternative OS).
And is it worth investing time in (its not going to sink is it?)

thanks
sergio

Qnx’s bootmanager will at least not do that. However, if you install
Linux, and use Lilo as a boot-manager, it should be entirely possible
to use qnx rtp from a second disk (you can search for lilo in the
knowledge database on URL:http://qdn.qnx.com/, for the howto on
using qnx on your second hd.

Anyway: qnx itself does not require that much space, so my initial
solution to the problem was creating ntfs partitions on the second
hdd, and move the swapfile of Win2k, and some other stuff to the
second hdd (which incidentally also boosts win2k performance :slight_smile:

Installing Linux?? Messing with Win2K?? Yuck!!
Just do the windows-based QNX install. No repartitioning, no
reconfiguration, done in less than 10 minutes. If you have a 20 gig hard
drive you must have room for QNX.
