Thumbs up Ready to be Windows FREE!!!

I finally got Slack 9 with fluxbox 0.1.14 installed on my machine with a dual boot of XP and the reason i am posting in this is i had a built in SiS 7018 sound card and for the hell of it i couldn't get the damn thing to work. so i put up 3 posts on here and got 1 reply which only told me to go buy a new card. I knew i could get the thing to work so what i did was went and got the alsa drivers which said they didnt support the mobo and card but i noticed it utilized the trident driver so i said what the hell, installed the drivers and bam the sound works. Now the only other thing i would like to do is i have Xp on the main 20gig and i have Slack on the 10gig slave setup with a 512 swap and the rest of the drive partitioned as one big linux partition with ext3, if i format the drive setup the partitions the same with the swap first then the other second and then make them ext3 and load the swap. can i just copy / to /dev/hda2 (which would be the 20gig). Edit the fstab file and edit lilo and make the 10gig a big linux partition

btw - why is this guy flying the bird?

I'm pretty sure he's waving his first finger, not his middle.

As for moving your entire linux install to a different partition, it sounds like is should work based on the way you describe it, but I would be very hesitant to remove your old install before being absolutely certain that something like this would work. Someone else can probably advise you better than I could at the moment.
