    Are you prepared to format your Winbloze installation? In any other case, you'll need to use PartitionMagic or so.
    If you're new to Linux, I wouldn't recommend Slackware. Go with RedHat, SuSE or Mandrake instead.

    if you need to keep both the OS's running, use partition magic and create another partition to use for linux...
    then just put the linux cd in, it will detect your partitions and start the installation..if you cant boot through the cd you'll need to make a bootable floppy...
