Newbie Mepis Installation query


Hii,

I have Redhat linux 9.0 on my system(alongwith WinXp),now I want to switch to MEPIS,so my question is that how do i remove Redhat from my Pc and Install MEPIS as I am having many problems with Redhat.

I am looking forward to use MEPIS alongside WinXP.

During installation just choose the Red Hat partition as a target so that Mepis overwrites it.

when you are about to install Mepis, you will have to option to replace your linux partitions, so all you have to do is use the partition in which you have re hat, you may keep your swap unless mepis gives you a different swap size, also reinstall grub just to have the mepis logo start up and you re all set up.... You will have so much fun with mepis It was one of the first distros I started using and you will be very happy with it.. good luck

I agree with Ahmed & jncarlos: just install Mepis over Red Hat & enjoy! I struggled with several other distros before I found Mepis. I stick with Mepis now because it just works, right off the CD.

Best wishes.

what about partitioning?

does the love cd allow you to create a separate /home partition?

i'm looking forward to installing MEPIS on a 2nd hard drive myself.

Yes. You can use any combination of old or new partitions. The installer will use
at most swap, / and /home, but after the install completes you can do almost anything
(sane) that you want with /etc/fstab and /mnt.
