Solved I am starting out with my entered sys specs. I want to end

Ibm Thinkpad 600x
October 27, 2020 at 11:15:00
Specs: Windows 2000 Professional Service Pack 3, Pentium III / 195,952 kB
I want to end-up multi-booting natively (NO boxes/no emulators) with the following 5 OSes that I understand are compatible (more or less) : 1/5 : Win for workgroups 3.1.1
2/5: MS-DOS 7.1
3/5: Win 2k Professional SP3
4/5: Red Hat Linux 7.3
5/5: IBM OS/2 2.1

FYI : All 5 OSes were legally bought from eBay (4) or will be legally downloaded from internet (1 - RHL 7.3 )

How do I intelligently begin to do this ? ...step by step...I dont know anything about computers Thank you in advance . BIGBLUE

You remember the theme, I remember Ali MacGraw ;)

I haven't used this program - GAG Boot Manager - in quite some time but it might do what you're asking.

✔ Best Answer
".Where do I begin ?"

First thing is replacing the dead BIOS battery. If you keep having to input hard drive geometry every time you boot, you're going to become extremely frustrated trying to do anything you hope to do in the original posting.
