Red face Mandrake 10 on fat32


Can Mandrake 10 be installed on FAT32 Partition same as that of windows 98 or does it need a spearate partition and of how much space. Does it also need a separate partition for swap space and how much space that also.

virgo; yes yes , but do not misinterpret partitions as files as in W. however
they are inlinux terms. think seeing a file case that would be the partiton.
files in filefolders would be placed in it[(partiton) (filecase)]. with an exception try not placing both OS,s in same partiton (linux) likes space.
