how to install on win2000 prof.
i have 39GB HDD with 3 partitions on it.
On 1 partition, WIN2k prof. is installed. other 2 are FAT32.
I want to use one of these partition to install LINUX.
I am pretty afraid to try installing on this HDD as any mistake will wipe out my important data on WIN2K.
May i know the safest way to try installing Linux and also,
Which Linux is advisable to install (RED HAT 7.1 or MANDRAKE 9.0?
