dual-booting XPPro Corp. and 2k3 Ent.
    #4300254 - 06/15/05 06:14 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

well tri-booting technically since I got debian in there too, but anyway:

I am dual-booting XP Pro and Server 2003 Enterprise.

I have a 30 Gig "OS" drive which has the main OS and System files, a 130 Gig "Storage" drive that has media, installers, etc, and a 160 Gig "Program Files" drive, which I typically use to install all my software to.

Now, with both my windows, is there anyway to "share" programs I have on the separate Programs drive? Or do I have to install two version of every program I want to use, one for each OS?

I suspect the latter is true, and it wouldn't be THAT big of a deal since there are tasks that I utilize mostly on 2k3 (server, programming, etc) and other ones that I use in XP (games, mostly, since I CANNOT get my ATI 9800 to work in 2003), but it would be nice to share programs just to save some space, like web browsers, dreamweaver, photoshop, etc.

Anyone gots dat know how?

why would you want windows server if you're already running debian?

but sorry, don't know the answer to your question...

they both have their advantages.
explorer is faster than kde or gnome
sometimes i need to use asp and such, sometimes I others I like to use PHP.

also, I got the extra disk space, so i figured id have both of for the hell of it.

i love server2k3, but its not easy compatible with a lot of my hardware...

yeah that what i figured about the missing reg entries. it seems like there should be an easy way around that though.

maybe if, for example, after install firefox on XP to my shared programs drive, i then install firefox in 2003 in the exact same location, overwriting any files in that directory.
that way, the main program files on the shared drive remain the same, but the installer sets up the correct reg entries ( and system files if necessary) on both OSes...

hmm.. any thoughts?

yes, I tried it and it worked like a charm with Firefox.
I haven't tried it with any other programs yet, since there isn't anything else I need in both OS'es yet, but I'm sure there will be more. I may try it with my Adobe software.

BTW, I finally got my Radeon 9800 to work in 2003, so I may actually end up using it more as a workstation than I thought....
