Fedora install


My questions are;
1) I have Mandrake 9.1 duel booted with Win 98 using lilo, Will I be able to load Fedora Core 2 where the Mandrake now is?
2) And if so will it require a separate partitioning tool, or will Fedora take care of it?

Thumbs up

Fedora has disk druid, AND an auto-matic partitioner for newbies... I installed mine six times... Make sure you NEVER hard-boot(Pull the power plug, hit the button swap the switch etc!)

just before u get into druid u can either select
use all the linux partitions on the system
or choose to manually handle by druid
its very similar to fdisc......its very simple to handle.....all the instructions are there on the same page

Thank you,
I thought I had read some where that Fedora had no partitionong tools.
My Mistake.
Take Care
