Booting Slack 9.1 with W2K ?


Currently Im running Mandrake 9.1 with W2K and Im just wondering how to boot from CD.

Do I have to put in the Slack CD BEFORE I turn on the machine or in GRUB will I need to select Linux or Windows and then boot from CD???

Also, will I have to boot my Windows or Linux when installing Slack for the first time?

Just put the CD in and turn on the machine. If it doesn't boot from CD, you'll need to go into the BIOS setup page on bootup and change the settings there for the boot-device order.
