As I stated in the last blog entry, I downloaded slackware and burnt it to disk.
It is about this time that I should point out that my harddrive was a NTFS partition
i.e. Not resizeable by linux (or even readable unless you have the kernel modules installed)
I had much important data on my harddrive and had already burnt 700+ CD's worth off.But I wanted dual boot so I spent another week getting what seemed like some reliable programs to re-partition my disk before...
