…on why I hate multiboot installs….

But first the good news; the database connection woes I was compaining about previously have been solved, and the app is now completed and sitting pretty in several system trays. I’m about to add new fields and possibly even new functionality (in the form of a to do list), to make it suitable for another team.

WHY I HATE MULTIBOOT INSTALLS

Why? Easy – they are an absolute pig to run. I’ve now lost count of the number of times I’ve reinstalled win98, win2000 and mandrake8 – fortunately I’ve given up on beos for now, but – not fun. Disappearing bootsectors, you name it – I’ve still not managed to get mandrake to boot from the nt bootloader – its a crappy bootdisc for me…

NNNNNNNRrrrg.

All this of course means delays on this becoming more than just a pile of drivel…
