If I boot GAG only from floppy, is my assumption correct that no changes are made to the hard disc? I would like to dual boot from the floppy to either Win ME, XP, or possibly Linux, but I like to use Norton GoBack, which modifies the MBR. Also I would like it to automaticly boot to the last OS if no floppy in inserted. Is GAG the right tool for this, or if there is a better one, please point me in that direction.
Ηι trgone! :-)
* "If I boot GAG only from floppy, is my assumption correct that no changes are made to the hard disc?"
Yes, if you don't choose (from preferences) hiding no-booting partitions.
No, if you choose hiding.

I don't think GAG has this option yet. (Am I wrong? If so, someone please tell me).
You can add a feature request (there: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?atid=519132&group_id=67836&func=browse ).
I think XOSL has this feature. I'm prefering GAG for many reasons, but if this feature is critical for you, take a look at XOSL v.2 (there: https://sourceforge.net/projects/xosl2/ ), or v.1 ( https://sourceforge.net/projects/xosl/ ).
Please tell me if you'll need anything.
Thank you for the quick response. Maybe if I explain my needs, you can point me in the right direction. I want to have multi operating systems or even the same OS totally seperated I have been using Win ME with multiple drives and simply disabling the drives in BIOS, but in trying to add Win XP, this option is no longer valid. I was thinking of having it boot to fixed OS (XP)with options if I inserted the floppy. I want limit my grandkids usage and protect my space, thus hiding is important.
Add to this the fact that I like to Symantec GoBack. (Love this for trying out new software) I believe that GoBack modifies the MBR, so I am limited in the amount of modification there.
Well, any suggestions?
