1) I am currently playing with Knoppix 3.7 as a boot from CD system, but waiting for anything to happen is a lot like watching grass grow. Machine is a K6-2/500, 100 mHz FSB, 128 megs of RAM(I know, need more RAM).
Will a HDD install speed this process up significantly?
2) I am gun-shy about attempting a dual boot set-up, as the last time I tried that with Mandrake 10.1, it wasn't dual boot as planned, and wiped out my HDD, OR did I just not understand the process. I expected a menu to come up at boot-up to ask me which one I wanted to run.
