Sorry if this problem has been resolved a thousand times before...
Iíve been having problems with my linux install and, as of yet, I havenít been able to find any threads pertaining to similar problems (I have no idea what Iím really searching for in the first place). Iím currently running Win2k on my primary hdd & would like to install a linux distribution on my second hdd.
When installing Mandrake 9.0, I complete the setup & allow LILO to be the boot loader since I donít mind LILO. I am able to successfully boot into Mandrake with full usability. The problem occurs when I reboot into Win2k. Win2k startup time increases dramatically to around 7 minutes to load my profile & initialize. Then, Windows Explorer reacts very, very sluggish and non-responsive sprinkling in the occasional ďProgram not respondingĒ messages.
OK, so I can then go back and delete my linux partitions on my second drive & reboot into Win2k and everything is kosher. What is causing this response?? If Explorer doesnít recognize the file system, doesnít it usually ignore the drive?? I would really like to explore Linux, but Iím also tied to Windows for programs that I need for school. Does anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this.
NOTE: Iíve also installed debian 3.0 with the same results.
