I have and Asus A7V133 Mobo with 2 IBM hardisks (2*30gb) setup up as Raid 0 on the Fasttrack ide controller. Currently Windows XP is running on it (NTFS).
what i want to do and where i need help ( cos im a absolutly Linux newbie):
1.Well... first i want to resize the partition with partition magic to get the space for linux. there is no problem i think.
but i am not sure if the linux distribtuion mandrake 8.2 will find my hds as a raid strip. so are there any problems or can i just "resize and boot from the cd" ???
cos on the mandrake homepage u can read that no ide raid is supported:
2. whats the best way to set up a dual boot system with winxp and linux?
thanks for help and sorry for my bad english ;-)
