My plan: Multiple Linux Distros happily cohabiting alongside Windows

28 Mar

Here is my perfect computer setup dream: 2 good sized hard-drives, one for data, one for Windows/Several flavors of Linux. This is so I can try out various Linux distros without corrupting settings and data in my main distro.  I want each operating system (on hard drive A) set up to look for data folders on hard drive B. In Linux, I’m told that it can be done using the fstab file to mount folders from hard drive B as though they were in the /home folder in each respective Linux. I’m not sure it can be done that way in Windows, but since I spend so little time there, it probably isn’t necessary. When I get this all worked out, I’ll post a how-to. First I have to get that 2nd hard drive.
