I have fedora core 3 installed in my machine. I would like to
have two boot options in GRUB- for the same linux - fedora core 3. Both
the options accesses exactly the same partitions. The difference
between the two boot options is
1. services each boot option starts up
2. Environment variable exported in /etc/profile. For one boot option
the environment variable exported should be different and for other
the environment varible is default linux.
3. Also there are two commands which I have added to /usr/sbin
in one options which does different option in one boot option while
for the other it is default linux.
4. For one boot option default boot level - /etc/inittab is GRAPHICAL
while for the other it is TEXT.
Is this possible in Linux. This may not be the right list to ask
this question. I don't want to install the same OS twice with seperate /
for this. Pls give some initial guidance on this.
