Question Disk Druid


Alright, I'm trying to install redhat linux 9.0 on my system. (I know it's about to expire..) Anyway, I need to keep windows on it too for some apps that I can't afford loosing. So, this is where the disk druid comes in. Or where I need help. Could someone tell me what I need to do to keep windows xp but install redhat on a seperate partision? I have no clue what to do with that part of the installation. I'm not expirenced with linux so bear with me. Thanks in advance.

you can resize your windows xp drive. Then make a new partition for linux thats formated in ReiserFs (journalling file system) and only ext2 if you have too. Then I would add a swap partition for more stabililty.

Thats the minimum requirements anyways. You can make as many partitions for linux as you want.
