    Size you pick is all up to you - personally my linux part is huge, because I did a full install of everything so I could play with it all... But you probably wont do that. You should have no problem w/ what you picked.

    Partition Magic will not let you resize below the space your used - meaning you wont loose anything.
    But, my legal disclaimer: It is highly recommended that you backup your NTFS partition to another medium before you start the resize. It is possible for the resize to have an error, or a power outage, etc, that could force you to loose everything!

    But I didnt do a backup and all was fine - but it IS a very possible and real potential problem.

    ok i fanally finished installing linux so thx for all the help but now i cant start the system the how to tells me this

    5. Booting the installed Slackware system

    The kernel will go through the startup process, detecting your hardware,
    checking your partitions and starting various processes. Eventually you'll
    be given a login prompt:

    darkstar login:

    Log into the new system as "root".

    Welcome to Linux 2.4.20.

    darkstar login: root
    last login: Wed May 24 12:30:39 -0700 2000 on tty2.
    Linux 2.4.20.
    You have new mail.

    darkstar: ~#
    but thats all it tells me... what command am i suppose to put after 'darkstar: ~#' to start it up??? lol its amazing all that and now this is whats stopping me

  4. $spacer_open
    $spacer_close

    I dont run slackware - but your IN! thats the shell - The GUI your looking for probably loads in runlevel 5 - so try to change to it (use command init 5)

    If no go type startx, that should load the GUI.

    dunno - but if problems continue I can only really help in fedora - you should consider it - easy to install. What do you thing - I use Fedora Core Release 2 - it's stable, and seems to work great on my system - I dunno about slackware thou

    Glad you got it up thou - good luck in the future!
