hello everything and thanks for the reading and the help on this issue,
Newbie to Linux as well for about 3 weeks... loving it lots but having a hard time to really sit down and get some learning in...
here is my question
I have two computers that I have options to install on. My main comptuer currently has an XP/Fedora setup with a remaning 10gb of hard drive space I was thinking of using to install some optional OS systems to learn from (linux systems). This main computer is using GRUB as the boot loader.
my second computer has XP installed with about 3.5gb of harddrive space avalible for a second system.
Now what I would like to do is put a from lf Linux OS on both systems so that I might get a chance to learn from them using the networking abilities of Linux. So with this said I will try to get my thoughts out with out having to say things in a confussing manner.
I am open to the way I setup these systems, but I think it would be nice to try putting Lindows 4.5 plus some other Linux distrobution on my main computer (so I would have WinXPpro,Fedora Core1, Lindows4.5 and maybe one other, these all so I can just see the differences between them and to try other distrobution with out distroying the Fedora which I am learning from via the 5 inch book on my desk!
My second computer I could put any OS on it, but I am thinking mostly using the FedoraCore1 because that is the one I am learning now with the book I purchased and its in a different room that i might be able to escape from to do some study of the FedoraCore1.
But when I "TRY" to install the LindowsOS4.5, the setup is very easy but it gives me no option to install Lindows on the extra partition I created in WindowsXP but its not formated. During the LindowsOS4.5 install, that partition does NOT show up in the advanced install option setup of the install. Why is this. I don't want to loose the information on the rest of this harddrive (kids comptuer that I just dont want to go through the resoftwareing of again
So with this last paragraph said and you hopefully understanding my lack of writing skills of the above information, Does anyone have ANY suggestions on what I should do???
THANKS EVER SO MUCH!!!
