I've tried to install Fedora Core3 but I'm having trouble with the partitioning and boot-loader. I want to install it on my hard drive with Windows XP on it, but I also want to reserve some storage space for Fedora on the other, bigger hard-drive. I also don't want windows to boot automatically, I want to choose which one to boot from a menu. Please help me into the linux community, I'm learning C++ and would like to be able to contribute oneday.
Update! : I'm screwing Fedora Core 3 and going for Mandrake. That also brings up problems. It says i have sda and sdb hard drives, which is correct. It also says that i have VolGroup00!?! which it says is 147 Gb, which is about the same size as my bigger hd. But it already recognizes my other HD!&$%# ...calming down... it won't let me past this installation point because of that. I don't know what to do. Plz help me my second hard-drive and linux CDs are going to waste
. Is there anything else you need to know?
