Dual booting AROS and Linux
« on: April 07, 2015, 05:39:05 PM »
Hey everyone,

Is it fairly easy to dual boot ICAROS and Linux? - ICAROS uses GRUB so how would I go about setting that up? - Should I install ICAROS first, or Linux first?

Looks like you should install Linux first.
Everything you need to know about installing is right here: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Aros/Platforms/x86_installing

Easy process, follow Ferrellsl's guide and you should have no problems.  I multiboot various Windows versions, Linux and AROS (on occasion) and guides similar to the one Ferrellsl linked never steered me wrong.

I'm gonna try AEROS first, see how well it works. (any personal experiences with AEROS?), I'll see if I can get it to run on one of my desktops. I've had Debian 7 on that particular desktop... AEROS uses Debian 6, so it should work the same I think. Got it downloading right now....!
