I am a newbie here and to Linux. I have some mouse problems, but I got advice about that in another forum.
Since I was unable to resolve my problem there I think I will take another route.
When I installed Mandrake I used the Recommended Install Mode. Here is where I think I made a few mistakes.
During the initial installation when I was asked where to install Mandrake I chose Win partition 3 w/a resize partition option. When asked what size to leave for Win98 I left the specified number which was around 1.5GB for Win.
When I got to the screen to choose applications to install I was forced to change the recommended selections because I only had 292MB of space available. I installed KDE, GNOME, and the required config programs only, using all the available space.
Well, I said all this to say maybe I donít have enough space allocated for Mandrake to run correctly.
Should I reinstall Mandrake and give the program more space? Can I reinstall over the current installation, or do I need to uninstall and reinstall? Can I give Win98 minimum space on the partition...say 300MBís?
Reinstalling would let me look at other mouse options, as I chose the PS/2 mouse during the install because that is the config that works in win98.
There are some other things that I feel I should mention:
This computer is an old Compaq 9240, Pentium 1 w/16 MB RAM, 8.4GB HD [w/o lg HD support] w/4 partitions [at approx. 2GBís each], OnTrack partitioning software, and Win98 in a fresh install. Mandrake is on the 3rd partition.
any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
