Making the needed partition out of this now free space.

a slight appendage...

alos, you may want to consider if yur like me and like to play with your system a lot and learn. format an extra partition and mount it as /home...make it at least 100-200MB... that way you wont lose any of your personal stuff when you screw around with the system, which, by the way, is the best way to learn!

As steave said, Just create c: the size you need for win98. Install win98 to c:. Then Install Linux using Disk Druid and create linux's partitions in the free space, you will see your win98 partition, leave it alone.


good luck
