Toque is an ASUS CUBX-E MB with 256Mb memory and a Maxtor 54098H8 40Gb hard drive (C/H/S 4982/255/63) on a Promise UDMA100 IDE controller. It is intended as a Win9x/NT/2000/Linux multiboot machine.
Linux is no problem. Newer versions of LILO can handle a full 32-bit block address, given the lba32 option, and so can boot anywhere in the first 2Tb of disk. Be sure to create a boot disk during the installation process, as this option currently has to be manually added to lilo.conf, and that requires you to boot it.
Multiple Windows operating systems must be installed most primitive to least primative. They all write files to the C: drive for startup even if they are installed in a separate parition. The primary partition must be formatted as FAT (for systems before Win95 OSR2,or NT 4) or FAT32.
You must let Windows partition the disk. It's not too bright and gets easily confused it the partition table isn't just so. Apparently C: must be the only primary partition, any additional partitions must be logical partitions. The primary partition must be partition 1 and the extended partition must be partition 2.
NT 4 less than SP4 will not recognize disk space above 8G, and apparently can't handle a bood disk (C:) that ends above the 2G point. You can install it to a D: drive, provided the C: drive ends below the 2G point and the D: drive ends below 8G.
2000 has a newer verions of NTFS than NT. Apparently 2000 will upgrade (without asking) any NFTS filesystems it finds during installation. NT versions before SP4 may not be fully compatable with the new NTFS, and no version of NT 4 will be able to use files that take advantage of new features. It is therefore recommended (by Microsoft) that you install NT 4 on a FAT partition.
