Red Hat Linux 9 & Win 98


Want to install Red Hat Linux 9 on a win 98 platform.
Have 3 partitions namely C2.5 GB) D2.5 GB) and E5 GB)

Have win 98 installed on C:
Want to install Linux on D: without disturbing C: or E:
Can it be done simply by booting with Linux CD and tell it to install Linux on the second partition and it will make the swap, root etc. within that partition automatically.

Is it that simple or do I have to do something else.

Shall be thankfull if I can get a step by step installation guide.


Also, is the procedure same for WIN XP platform?

Thanks for the quick response.

Doing this way will the other two partitions C: and E: remain unaffected?

Secondly do I have to configure something for dual booting or will it be automatic?
