I am trying to install Mandrake onto my system which is currently running on winxp. Being completely new to this, I thought I should partition using partition magic and bootmagic to create another partition for Linux as I still want to keep winxp running for a while.
Problem is, I can't seem to even get the partition completed on winxp. So now I am wondering if the Mandrake installation will automatically create partitions, etc... so that I can install it on the system and still keep my winxp?
I would want to be able to choose which OS to use on bootup (which was why I tried out bootmagic, but cant get it to work yet).
Any ideas? I am very new to Linux and reading here still makes me confused as I don't really know what is being discussed here.... any help would be great.
