I have two HD 3.2 (Windows 95) and 1.2 (ready for Linux hopefully).

Thought I would warm up using Lnx4win and loaded it to the smaller HD in about 1 hr and 20 min using old Pentimun 166 and 40 mb. I can select Windows or Linux from the GRUB menu just fine. When the manual stated Lnx4win was slow, they should have spelled it s l o w for it takes 20 to 30 minutes just to get icons on the desktop. Then it never stop spinning the HD doing something but none of the icons can be started. The only mistake that I am aware of was in configuring the Internet Connections for I did not have all the DNSs at the time so the connection test failed as expected. Did not think it would be a probably to update the Dialup Options,,,wrong up to now for I have not found how to reconfig a device after installation.

How easy is it to add Linux partitions to the c: for dual booting Windows and Linux with DRAKX without killing the current OS
