Installing to a second hard drive.
Alright, before you guys jump down my back, I did search but I think my set up, or problem is a little different. I've also never used Linux before.
The reason I am installing it to a second hard drive and not to another partition on my main hard drive is because the hard drives are simply too small to share. Sorry, now.. to the point
I have two hard drives, both are set as masters because that was the only way I could get them to work. My windows XP hard drive is secondary master and my potential Linux hard drive is primary master.
Anyway, when I go to install mandrake, by simply putting in the CD and rebooting my computer, and it comes down to choosing a partition.. I get lost.
I choose to do use a custom partition, since I don't want to erase my windows XP and I don't want to use the free space on my windows XP hard drive. Then I see two tabs, hda and hdc. I figured one of them was my windows XP hard drive and one of them was my second hard drive, however, it says that one of them has 9.5gb and one has 7mb.. both of my hard drives are 10 gig hard drives. This is where I get confused. I don't know what to do.
Sorry if there is not enough info, if someone could tell me what else they needed to know to help me that would be fine.
