    newbie installation


    As you can see this is my first post and totally new to linux in any form. i have a new machine to play with and would like some advise on where to start.

    i have a macine with a single 80 gig ntfs hardrive running windows xp pro. i want to install mandrake 9.2 and if possible have it windows xp running as well (duel boot).

    i think i need to split my hardive, can i use the usuall fat32 and split the drive into two? or is there another method?

    once i have my two drives do i just put my disks in and load to the selected drive

    regards
