Boot failure after installing Slackware
I have a 40GB HDD Seagate, I was not able to partition it using Win98 because I went directly in installing a WinXP. When the installing is finished and reboot, an error occured. There is no bootable disk, even my harddisk was not able to boot. I partition my harddisk using the WinXP, after the error I decide to try installing the Slackware 10.1 but still it was not able to boot. As I read on my book "Linux Undercover" it suggest to use "fdisk /mbr" but still it does not boot.
What are the right partitioning if I have a 40GB harddisk, and how can I attain the "1024 cylinders" like what the book says. I want to run a dual boot using WinXp and Slackware.
Please help because I really want to learn Linux. Thanks.
