How can I install an Mandrake 8.0 linux if I have already installed RedHat 7.1 on my HDD.
I have two HDD first have some windows partitions and one ext2 partition and a swap partition for redhat.

My second hdd is known as hdd (secondary slave) . How can I install on my second hdd that Mandrake 8.0 linux. It's possible to install Mandrake 8.0 too ?

I got an error when I try to setup partitions on my second HDD somethinf like ... raw_... partiton talbe is full .

What can I do to install multiple linux distributions on the same computer to separated hdd ?

I would think you would have to do an expert install so that your RH linux does not get overwritten. You can format free disk space during an expert install. Take a look at the demos and tutorials sections where you can get a walk through of the install steps (Demo > 8.0 DrakX, at least):

I installed Mandrake 8.0 on the second hard drive of a system that already had Redhat 6.2 on it without any problems. You should, as rolf suggested, use the Expert installation mode.
