How do I get my boot loader to find the volume "image.be" if it will not fit
on the /boot partition.short of re-installing my Mandrake 8.0 system?
here are the facts.

can I try the Be with my present set up or do I need to start over and
repartition my hdb and make more room for experiments like this?
I have been working on this for a long time, and now I'm stuck again.
Thanks again for all the help :)
