Installing Another Version Of Linux


Hello. Currently I have my computer set to use GRUB to dual boot into either Ubuntu or Windows XP. I'm planning on installing JAD as well. I just wanted to check how to install it onto a different partition as to not overwrite my Windows or Ubuntu. An empty partition is already prepared for it and I know how to configure GRUB. I just want to know how to make sure that JAD installs on the right partition. Thank you for your time.

The normal Linux installer will offer several partitioning options--including specifying an existing partition. Since JAD is based on OpenSUSE, I would expect no issues.

To be safe, always have important data backed up before installing **anything** on your computer.
