    Sure mate. Here is is:


    Filesystem サイズ 使用 残り 使用% マウント位置
    /dev/sda2: 7.6G 6.9G 344M 96% /
    /dev/sda1: 8.6G 38M 8.1G 1% /boot
    tmpfs: 248M 0 248M 0% /dev/shm

    By the way, I am sorry not to show it in English...Those letters, from left to right, mean:
    "size","used", "size left","used percent" and "mount position".

    Arigato,man.

    Disk Partition Structure is not good at all.
    first partition, /boot is 8.6GB. it should be only 102 MB maximum. third partition, SWAP is in LVM and its around 100 GB.
    download GParted .iso image and burn it to CD. boot from it.
    shrink first partition to 102 MB. delete LVM and create New SWAP partition around 750MB. install Windows in newly created space.

    Oh, excuse me. You say: "the first partition", "swap"... would you mind in
    telling me "/dev" like names so I understand better? (Since I don't want to ruin my PC...)

    See ya!!

    P.D: I have also considered installing DR DOS instead of Windows 98... the procedure
    would be the same, right?

    accroding to output of fdisk -l, first partition is /dev/sda1. shrink this partition.

    both are same. go ahead.

    Oh, excuse me. I have one more doubt ...
    I have GParted now, and also DRDOS...then:
    I would have to create a new partition, and format it to FAT32, right?
    Should I create a "/dev" like partition, or a "C:>" like one, or it doesn't matter?

    yes ! create a new partition and format it to FAT32.

    Should I create a "/dev" like partition, or a "C:>" like one, or it doesn't matter?
    create new partition. GParted will assign it a new number /dev/sda3 or something like that. Windows will recognize it as C:\> drive.

    Hi friends.
    Thanks a lot for your nice help.
    I finally could do it with Windows, and soon will try with DOS.
    See you guys!
