Hi there gang -

I need your help ,

I am currently have a dual - boot system with Windows home XP , and Fedora , with GRUB as the boot loader...

How do I install another O.S . say Mandrake 10 , or slackware ..

along with what I already have .. I have plenty of Disk space..

Do I need to change something in the GRUB Bootloader first ?

And if so what needs to be changed ?

At what point do I go ahead to load the new Operating System ?

If possible could you pls show step-by-step instructions....

thanks heaps....

Hi sevvy8

You can follow these steps {no warranties/liabilities } ->

1. Put the Cd of mandrake in the cd-drive and boot from it.
2. In the options for the bootloader , select GRUB on mbr.
3. Make sure you make the boot disk.


PS -> BACKUP your data for safety
