Just finished installing Base Debian given by PCQ . got a couple of questions Debian Took up all my previous Swap partions for itself . had three swap partitions for RH8,PCQ04,Xan and Suse . While installing deb it took those swaps for itself . so how do i disable it Unable to login through X-Windows , even though i created a user . it isnt letting me login as root too , though i think this is a feature . Loading Debian with Loadlin . Why does it alone need initrd : initial ram disk i think . others load with from load lin without it fine . but with debian and xandros , it give panic error . I use explore 2 fs to , well explore linux partitions and extract vmlinuz(kernel images) for various linuxes . So all i get in that screen is hdc# and listing of numbers per linux partition . Now which file would i have to open to in the partitions to know which linux flavor is in the partition . For deb i found etc had a file named debconf or something , but xandros also has this . so is there any file which contains the flavor and version in the linux partition ? I was given a choice to make seperate partition as primary , but it took it as /home . so i didnt create it . How can i change the free partition to Primary from Within Linux ??? this is to install Freebsd , which needs primary partition right ?
