I am a newbie to Linux. I want to do a dual boot with windows XP Home.
My machine is a gateway with an AMD chip not the 64 bit one.
1) Do I have to first partition my hard drive or will the linux program
partition it for me?
2) I tried installing SUSE prof 9-1 evaluation without partitioning and it
booted. It went through its stuff and then came to the part of the
software. It said "cannot read package data from installation media
and then media Error. I tried to hit the apply button but it gave me the
message Error No Proposal. Then it would not continue its installation
How do I fix the first question and fix the second question to get it to install on my hard drive.
I read there are free programs used to partition. Does anyone know the names and where I can get them.
Thanks for any help.
