It depends... Do you already have Windows on your comp? And do you want to keep it? And how many hard drives do you have? I'd be happy to help, as I've done the Slack installation before. Just need to know what you are working with.

Then the world (or at least the disk) is your oyster - just follow Tink's link and have fun.

May I suggest that you might possibly be more comfortable
with cfdisk rather than fdisk?
