the answer is yes, but also depends on variants and what you want to be able to do!

No, it doesn't depend on the variants. When he says Unix, he means either linux or BSD. I can say that and know I'm right, because commercial Unix systems cost shitloads of money. And I know he wants it free. They all come with either LILO or GRUB, so the answer is yes, it doesn't matter what variant, and it doesn't matter what you want to be able to do.

Hell, you don't even have to use lilo or grub to do this if you don't want to. Boot floppy anyone?
and btw, moved to *nix Security

heh, I found the coolest program ever so I aquired it... Umm It is called VMWare Workstation (I have ver4.02) What you do is install it on your 'Host OS' They cover a wide variety Win/*nix then it emulates hardware.. Eg: your harddrive is in a file now. You can mount an ISO as a CD, use a physical one. Give the other 'computer' some of your ram and boom install another OS and run it at the same time as your host os. I love running Slackware inside of win2k.

::glances at neo:: it's more fun running w2k in slackware :x... More "elite" anyway... Still kinda cool that way too
Perg, BSDi = commercial linux suite, I have the iso somewhere :x...
