Question Mandrake 8.1 w/ WinXP


I have WinXP Home Edition and I just burned the iso for Mandrake 8.1 Workstation off of the mandrake website. Before I install it, I wanted to know ith the installation had a partition resizer (like SuSE) that would make a linux partition on my 60gb WD [slave] hard drive. I don't want to use the whole disk for linux. Also, does the wkstn iso include KDE?

Sunil


PS: Will the lilo actually work with XP? ME didn't like it, so I was stuck with a boot floppy

I'd suggest partitioning with Partition Magic before installing. KDE is included as far as I know.
