Cool Mandrake 9.2 Installation


OK here we go, the long advented switch to linux is a bout to begin.

I have a full copy of Mandrake 9.2 (not the best distro but it's a start) and I am partioning my hard drive with Casper as I write this.

Next steps:

How do I choose which OS to use when I turn the computer on?

When you will have installed Mandrake 9.2, you will have installed a bootloader (ex: LILO) .. so this program will give you the choice to choose your OS to boot on them'

During the installation, you get an option to install a bootloader. A bootloader is what will allow you to choose which distro to boot into at startup. You can use LILO(LInux LOader) as the boot manager.

You can multiboot with LILO and so you can install as many distributions on ur system as you like, including Windows.

Cheers.
