Ok, so I installed Mandrake 9.1 about a month ago on a completely clean hard drive and so far so good, my only complaint is that the software that comes w/ it is out of date, and I'm such a newbie that I'm still figuring out how to update it...
Which brings me to my windows/Mandrake question, since I've decided I want both on my computer. How the heck do you install windows and Mandrake on the same hard drive? I've tried using the partition program on the installation cd (pretending like I'm going to install, and the killing the whole application once I repartition the drives) and then inserting the windows Me cd (Dell factory copy). I then get an error after windows formats my "c" drive that it can't reda the end of my harddrive, and it needs to run scandisk. About halfway through, it finds a bad cluster, can't fix it, and then I get frustrated and re-install Mandrake
(I've tried this about 3 times). I have a boot cd for windows me that I've tried to run, but that doesn't work either.
So how do I do this?
I could try XP as well, if that makes a difference. Thanks so much!
