Re: Any way to install new Fedora on second drive of a running system?

Hmmm... intriguing! I do have VMware running on my system, and I think
I should be able to do what you outlined in your email.
This would be a huge help - since configuring the system takes a long
time (need TeX working just right, web scripts just right).

So summarize your solution: make VMWare use the .iso image of an
install CD, and make it use the physical hard drive as its primary. So
this way VMWare won't use a disk file to save its image but use the
physical second drive. This is a bit of a new concept to me, so need
to digest it a bit.
Thanks!
