    I have SuSE in multiboot with doze and OS/2 on two machines. BM is the
    boot manager, which loads Grub on /dev/xdx5 when Linux is chosen. I do
    all partitioning with DFSee.

    thanks, Felix. I shall resize those partitions as you suggest.

    big question: will Yast ask me (not really sure how this
    works) where to place these? come to think of it, since
    that box has Winders on it, I guess I'll boot up W98, then
    insert the first SuSE CD, then it'll offer me those various
    options, no?

    thanks for the pointer, I'll be studying it further in a few days.

    I suppose I'd be potentially up against two problems: Linux
    booting from that far out in the HD, and/or Boot Manager
    being able to recognize and boot that partition, but I
    installed the IBM fix a couple months ago so I think that
    should be taken care of.

    Thanks again.

    Been a LONG time since I last set up linux on BM. As I recall, I had
    major pain trying to get BM to boot the kernel, what I wound up with
    was BM chaining to lilo (or maybe grub, don't recall anymore) which in
    turn booted the kernel.

    Loading the linux kernel is the job of the GNU boot loader, whether LILO
    or GRUB. BM simply loads the first sector of the partition you install
    the boot loader on, in effect, chaining the boot process, just as the
    GNU loader will do if you set it up that way for a doze or OS/2 primary.
