 +====== Installation Troubleshooting ======
 +===== Using two disks =====
 +If your computer has two hard disks on the IDE controller
 +and you are installing MINIX 3 to the second one, sometimes
 +there can be a problem booting. This problem occurs if the
 +second disk does not have a correct boot program in the MBR
 +(Master Boot Record). To solve this problem, boot MINIX 3 from
 +the CD-ROM, log in as root, and type:
 +installboot -m /dev/c0d1 /​usr/​mdec/​masterboot
 +This command will install a proper MBR on drive 1 and you
 +should not have any more problems. You may have to reinstall
 +MINIX 3 however.
