installing mandrake 9.1 total newbie question
Im in the process of downloading mandrake 9.1 , i had a bash at knoppix and liked it so decided to install a proper linux operating system to see if i could cope with it
Anyway, before i start installing it i have a few questions that are not described in the help files on the site to clearly.
Windows is on C I have some extra program files on D so i would like to install linux on a spare partition E. Is this quite simple to do??
Also, I remember someone saying that a boot loader would be installed, Is there a way so that there is just a brief pause to choose booting into linux before it boots into xp so that there is not a greater amount of time added on to my reboot time? OR i have also heard that i could do without a bootloader if i just put it on a floppy and when i want to use linux boot from the floppy? how would i go about that?
