Hey all, I'm totally new to Linux, let alone Slackware, but not Windoze or computers. Anyways I only have one OS drive (WD) (one for storage(Maxtor), which I am not going to poop around with) which I would like to put Slackware 9.0 on, which I have a CD of...
PC2700 512MB DDR RAM CL 2.5
Maxtor 60GB 2Mb Cache @ 7200rpm
WDW800J 80GB 8Mb Cache @ 7200rpm
MSI geForce 4 Ti 4600 128MB DDR RAM
MSI KT3 Ultra ARU 333MHZ Mobo
So. I have Windows on this HD with a partition covering all 80 gigs with NTFS. I would like to get away from the lame windows for awhile and learn linux... So I have read around a bit. Based on my system, I should use something like Parition Magic, (or fdisk
) to make a swap partition sized at around 1024megs and... say, room for the Slack OS, around 15 gigs.
I just don't really want to mess anything up too badly, which I doubt. But I was wondering if there was a comprehensive tutorial on getting it all set up (2 partitions w/ os loader selection at startup, etc.)
