Running Multiple Operating Systems

Congratulations! If all went well, you should now be happily triple booting Windows 98, Windows 2000, and RedHat Linux on your machine.

There are many pluses to running multiple operating systems. For instance, we all know that Windows 98 is far from the most stable operating system out there, but on the plus side supports the most hardware, and all the games you'll want to be playing. So in other words, when you want to play games, reboot into Windows 98. But if you wish to do work, or something where you don't need 100% compatibility, then choose Linux or Windows 2000, as they offer much speedier performance, and stability.

If you choose not to follow through with this article and install three operating systems, there is an easier way. If you are currently running Linux or Windows NT4/2000 on your machine by itself, you can use a program called VMWare. This is a truly unique program, which allows you to load an entire operating system onto a virtual hard drive in the form of a .dsk file on your real hard drive. Then, through the VMWare software, you can load up the OS, all from a window inside your existing operating system! Amazing eh? I have tried this myself, and I assure you it's incredibly simple, and really does work. The only draw back is that a license for the software costs $299, so save up that allowance if you wish to try out this piece of software.
