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
try use partition magic, i heard that mandrake 9.2 has got the resize tools for ntfs.
installation process will ask u where to install yr linux
i also want to network another four machines with the main machine running linux acting as a server,all shareing a broadband connection. do you see any problems with the method i have chosen
