I decided I would try to install Slackware, so I burned an iso of the the latest version.
I run XP on a well equipped PC.
I partitioned my drive with Partition magic using the wizard to setup the linux partition.
I installed by booting from the CD. Everything seemed to go OK and at the end I rebooted into XP where I manually added the new OS to Bootmagic.
Rebooted and bootmagic gave me : XP and Linux.
After choosing slackware it just goes to a screen that said 'preparing to boot OS'. The problem is that it just hangs there indefinitely. I tried to reinstall a few different times. But now, frustrated, I've erased it and returned my PC to its original single partition.
I don't want to be an XP slave. Please help
