dual booting mandrake on a unformated partition
okie, newbie here again =P arnt we played everyone is trying to convert? heh..
anyway, i have reformatted my hard drive, and created two main partitions. my main is running windows and the rest are un-touched... when i tried to install mandrake linux, it says i need to mount the partition first with "/" when i typed that, it said that it is not possible and some other stuff... i duno if i should mount as /boot... what does that means?
if i am not wrong, that partition is in a FAT32 format... under windows when i clikc on that drive it says "drive e: is not formatted, do u want to format it now?"
do i need to use a program, like maybe windows's computer management > disk managment to format it as NTFS before i can instal mandrake onto it?
also, once i have done that, does it mean after installing mandrake (if it was successful) i would get a screen when i turn on my computer immediately choosing which OS i want to boot into? or is there some other steps i need to do to get this "dual booting option" ?
all help will be greatly appreciated!!
