Is the 760XD still enough of a PS/2 to run AIX?
How do you pronounce AIX?
For multiple OS-es I love the 'System Commander' product. They used to be http://www.v-com.com, but their name has changed to www.avanquest.com. The latest version is System Commander 9. They will clearly document things like 'this OS must be installed in first 1.5 Gb of disk space', or 'this OS must boot from within the first 1024 cylinders/tracks', or cannot install/boot this OS from an extended partition.
I've used this off and on for ten years, probably have three of the last five versions of it. On an older desktop PC, I at one time had 6 or 7 different OSes setup to boot (had about 12 partitions across 2 EIDE HDs) , including linux, windows (NT 4.0, 2000, XP and a server), one version of QNX and a DOS version. All just to see if it worked, and it did! I still have the older boxes and *printed* instruction manuals, just to look at the lists of older and lesser-known operating systems they mention.
Some of the detailed writeups describing early linux distributions (1999-2000) are still good reading.
I was going to pronounce AIX phoneticaly - like "aches" - because that will probably describe the process of finding software for it.
Is there a FAT-32 upgrade for OS/2?
Also, the link for Operating Systems Notes above should be this: http://www.v-com.com/support/sup_os_index.html
'PC DOS 2000' is the 1999 release of PC DOS made Y2K compliant, I believe. If yes, this page says "must be installed on a primary partition on the first drive." First drive is v-com speak for primary partition on 1st EIDE drive, if you're using EIDE.

I think they might be referring to the forum at OS/2 World.Bookworm wrote:>>Is there a FAT-32 upgrade for OS/2?

Um, this *is* the OS/2 forum. Are you lost?
They have a discussion on dual booting.
The forum is very helpful.
He claimed and verified to the satisfaction of, I believe Maximum PC Magazine, he had 39 operating systems on his computer. He used XOSL as the boot loader.
I also encourage you to find a copy of a very good book titled The Multi-Boot Configuration Handbook, published by Que, author Roderick W. Smith, ISBN:0-7897-2283-6. This is one of the easiest books to read with more information packed within its 639+ pages than any other computer book I own. (And no, I will not sell my copy.) This book even came with a copy of Partition Magic.
