Mandrake install (Partitioning) question
Very wet behind the ears. I currently have WinME primary C: fat 32, an extended partition containing a D: drive fat 32 for Windows apps and data. I took the remaining unpartitioned free space in the Extended partition and created an ext2 partition and swap partition with Partition Magic. These are both formatted.
1/. I would like to install Mandrake and have it install in these partitions - they are 4 gig and 100mb. If I choose the regular install will it automatically use these partitions, or do I need to use the Expert install, and set it manually? I should also ask, will linux install in an Extended (logical) partition, or does it need to be primary?
2/. What do I need to do to ensure my Windows C and D drives remain unharmed, and be able to choose to boot Windows or Linux when I start the machine?
