Hello.. when I used osloader 2000
it detected everything automatically even if the normal boot loaders of the
programs were not working... As I remember also this was shareware, however
it did not stop functioning,
rather it only told you to register, and you could ignore that and continue
The way you installed it was using a win98 boot disk floopy that had the
program on it.. so you could install it from there. Of course
for those who do not have a floppy there are win98 boot cd images around
like here for example: http://www.bootdisk.com/
Since it now says it supports vista perhaps it is a solution.
To tell you the truth, I gave up multibooting because it was too much of a
hassle to set everything up... at one point I had 5 OS's on. After that I
just used virtual machines to do everything.. or had a separete test machine
that I didnt mind formating all the time.
I have now something like 10 virtual machines with various versions of
windows and linux. The only thing I must say about virtual machines
is that they are slower than a normal pc... and that the host must have at
least 1 gb or ram. I have 1 GB and it works, but I am thinking about
upgrading to 2 gb, so that I can give pleanty or ram to the client... I
believe that as hardware becomes faster virtual machines will be the
ultimate solution... vmware and microsoft see that coming and thats why they
are investing, and giving some of their programs out for free.
