I have 40GB hard drive with 5 partitions, which are: C:\, D:\, E:\, F:\ and G:\
C: is of 10GB on which I am running windows XP Pro while on D:\ I usually install my graphic creation softwares and E:\ is belongs to my brother and F:\ contains my very important data and G:\ is free..
I want to install mandrake linux on G:\ which is of 3.5GB, I don't want to loose my any data.... I am a experte Windows user (Web Developer) but new to linux
so can any of you linux geeks guys can guide me on step by step safe installation of linux mandrake 9.x with windowsXP (dual boot) ????
Also, my friend, which have linux mandrake install on his PC told me that I have to delete my existing G:\ partition and linuz setup will automatically detects it??? why we will do that???
Any help/ideas are appreciated
