Ok, I've been using RH9 for a while now but i want to switch to Mandrake.
Will it be possible to do this without screwing up the MBR? I have a RH9/WinXP dual boot and when i installed RH i just let it put the bootloader (GRUB) onto the MBR.
I want to just boot up the Mandrake CD, tell it to delete all existing Linux partitions and have it create new ones in the free space. Will it "automagically" detect the windows partition and set the bootloader up to offer Mandrake and WinXP?
I really don't feel like installing Mandrake, losing windows, so then having to install windows and deal with the activation crap, then re install mandrake to get it setup right.
BTW i have no files that i need from the home/ directory or annywhere else, so that is not an issue. Its just the issue of not letting my MBR get screwed up. I do have things in windows that i do not want to have to re-download.
