Some help required.

I just finished building my new system some time ago and I have a copy of Mandrake 8.2 from awhile ago. I was wondering if I can simply take my old hard drive around 20 gig and use the whole thing as linux and leave my main one as is and still dual boot? It seems to simple so I doubt that will work.

I think you mean have an existing hard drive for Windows, and add a new one for Linux. If this is the case, then yes, it will work.
Simply add the harddrive, and let the Mandrake Installed do the rest for you. LILO should have an entry for Linux and an entry for Windows.

May I suggest a newer version of Mandrake though, such as v10.0...

I hope this helps
