Re: Help required regarding Debian

    I think there is no need to read this guide. if required, download plain
text version of this guide.

 now how to install debain. u need a free partition for this. just boot the
computer with debain CD follow the instructions and assign this free
partition as root partition for Debian linux and swap partition u r using in
RH as swap partition. I hope u won't find any problem.
                   In fact there is no problem in using same swap partition
in diff. Linuxes. At a time only one which is running is using it.
            Just use same swap partition  entries in /etc/fstab for both.
  /dev/hda2         none     swap
