How do I install slackware on a partition made by partition magic in windows


Ok so I am going to dual boot windows for some of those games that haven't been ported to linux and slackware for UT2K3 (Best game evar) so I made a few partitions for slackware but how do I point it to them?

Well, did you make a "Linux native Partiton" and a "Linux Swap" partition? If you did. Slackware should detect it during the install.

UT2003 has a linux version. Its on the third disc.

I did make both but when I did that with redhat it made me repartition it with there partition program.

And yes I know that I can install it from the third disk. One thing just how much faster will it run on linux.

Well, you dont have to in Slackware. It gives you the choice to format it (which I recommend), but you don't even have to do that.

Well UT2k3 ran about 15 FPS faster in linux for me.
