Hey everyone. I'm new to Linux and just looking for some advice on getting Linux installed while maintaining my existing xp. I have partition magic and almost 20GB left on my 30GB drive. I just wanted to clarify a few things because there are so many different opinions.
1. When resizing xp should I create the partitions necessary for Linux or leave some unallocated space for Mandrake to do its stuff with?
2. When installing lilo should it go to the mbr or not? This is the one I see many differences of opinion with. What are the consequences of doing this way or the other?
Thanks in advance for help. I've been holding off the install for a while and am keen to get in to it now. cheers
